Twenty-five epic fantasies for fans of "Game of Thrones"

At the B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog Ross Johnson tagged twenty-five epic fantasies for fans of Game of Thrones, including:
The Night Angel Trilogy, by Brent Weeks

Azoth, unlike Arya Stark, was raised on the streets, scrounging to survive—but the two have much else in common. Weeks’ trilogy (now collected together in a single volume) follows the assassin anti-hero who knows an opportunity when he sees one. Under Durzo Blint, he seeks to become the perfect “wetboy”—an assassin navigating the dangerous politics of his world as well as its magic. The name he chooses: Kylar Stern means “one who kills and who is killed,” mirroring Arya’s role with the Faceless Men as a bringer of death, but also its servant.
