So you've finished reading the fifth Game of Thrones book, and now what are you going to do? Wait five to seven years for the next book to come out? Turn to non-epic fiction? Don't be ridiculous! Instead, start reading Jacqueline Carey's Kushiel's Legacy series.
Filled with all the epic staples, Carey's trilogy will provide you with plenty of intriguing and satisfying reading material as you weather the long winter between Martin books (or any other uncompleted series you're in the midst of reading). Elements of Grecian epics, sensuality, religion, war, extreme travel, and monarchies are rounded out with fresh and captivating characters. You won't want to put down these books.
