It's a low-fantasy series that revolves around a war to claim the Iron Throne and crown of the land of Westeros and the looming return of a monstrous, supernatural race called the Others, who are set to screw over the entire world if the war goes on and everyone keeps ignoring them. The books are also notorious for their inclination toward murdering major characters, but I won't get fully into that because spoilers.
Basically, just imagine a much darker, slightly less fantasy-ish HoMM with a whole lot more manipulative political intrigue.
