George R. R. Martin's A Game of Thrones Leather-Cloth Boxed Set (Song of Ice and Fire Series): A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast for Crows, and A Dance with Dragons - George R. R. Martin
Definitely nowhere near finished this series (I'm only thirteen chapters in to the second book, "Clash of Kings"), however; I'd definitely recommend it, even if you're not a fantasy-genre reader. I'd definitely never categorize myself as loving fantasy fiction, but this series is so intricate and well-told that it's hard not to get sucked into the story.
"Cersei set a tasty table, that could not be denied. They started with a creamy chestnut soup, crusty hot bread, and greens dressed with apples and pine nuts. Then came lamprey pie, honeyed ham, buttered carrots, white beans and bacon, and roast swan stuffed with mushrooms and oysters. Tyrion was exceedingly courteous; he offered his sister the choice portions of every dish, and made certain he ate only what she did." -- A Clash of Kings, George R. R. Martin (recipe!)
