A lot of people who enjoy A Song of Ice and Fire also enjoy R. Scott Bakker, so you might want to check out his work. The Darkness that Comes Before is the first book.
I haven't heard of him so I'll have to check it out since I'm a big Martin fan. In general, Martin has ruined me for fantasy as I find that nothing else holds a candle to ASofIaF.
Don't count on Bakker's characters having nearly the charm of Martin's. He builds a compelling world but I honestly couldn't give a shit about a single person or plot. I finished the first book, put it down, and immediately forgot the whole thing.
