    Need another fantasy book series to read while you wait for the next George R. R. Martin release?

    It may be years before George R. R. Martin releases another full-length novel in his A Song of Ice and Fire series. The first novel in the series, A Game of Thrones, was published in 1996 and intended to be the first of a trilogy. As Martin wrote, though, the story expanded and instead of three books the series has grown into what is expected to be seven novels .

    A Song of Ice and Fire tells the story of a world where a battle rages on for the throne, dragons fly in the sky, and creatures emerge from the dead. The novels have beentranslated into 20 languages, and been modified into an HBO series. Currently, Martin has released five of the seven novels and is writing the sixth.

    When the sixth book in the series—much less the seventh—will arrive on shelves, is open for debate. It took Martin six years to complete the fifth book, and there are no signs he's writing any quicker this time around. Though he has released several chapters from the sixth book on his website, his publisher has stated that readers won't see the next book on shelves until early 2016.

    In the meantime, here are 11 fantasy series full of the same love, magic, and revenge as Martin's tale to tide you over until the sixth book comes out.
