I also own copies of Игра престолов (A Game of Thrones) (you can see that book here), and Буря мечей (A Storm of Swords). They are a matching set of three books.
I can't actually read these books. My dad, during the Cold War in the 1960s, took classes in Russian. He tried, mostly unsuccessfully, to teach me some words and the Cyrillic alphabet. I still have his Russian dictionaries and text books.
Here's the first sentence from the back cover of the book:
Перед вами - величественное шестикнижие <<песнь льда и огня>>.
which translates as:
Before you - a majestic Hexateuch << A Song of Ice and Fire >>.
