I used to read only girly books, ever since witnessing a making of A Game of Thrones (part of it) and reading the books I crossed to the dark side. I'm from Croatia (appologies for bad english) temporarily living in Boston for the additional schooling. Since I'm still new to this type of Fantasy I wanted to ask you for the series with the court intrigue, manipulation, dying..well you might say something like Martin's series. Something with a big brain and less brawn. Thanks.
