Harry and Jon and ____

My non-reader boyfriend enjoys Harry Potter and A Song of Ice and Fire because he easily became so invested in the characters. He doesn't care so much about literary value; he just wants characters that he can care about and journey with, and when they feel grief or happiness, he wants to mourn for them or celebrate with them. What should he read next?

Series are preferred. Huge, active fandoms are good - he loves the ASOIAF community and participates regularly on the Westeros forums. He won't read it if the characters and their arcs aren't compelling, even if the prose is gorgeous or the setting is fantastic. His birthday is coming up, and I'd really like to find a third love to at least tide him over until season three of Game of Thrones.
