Never viewed this topic before but I also liked the Songs of Fire and Ice books. Still havnt finished Feast for Crows yet but that is because they took jon out and put him in the next book (Dance with Dragons). Also some of my favorite fantasy books are the Serpentwar Saga by Raymond E. Feist. Names of the books are Shaddow of a Dark Queen, Rise of a Merchant Prince, Rage of a Demon King, and Shards of a Broken Crown. Also like Cbs said earlier in this thread the Sword of Truth novels (he called it the wizard first rule books) are also good reads kind of slows a bit in the middle but started getting better here of late.
