Have you looked at the books-section here on GameDev? If you haven't, that might be a good starting point. Sorry if this isn't much help, I haven't got any books I can recommend.

Thinking in C++ Vol 1 & 2 (Free ebooks)
Effective C++
More Effective C++
Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object Orientated Software
Pragmatic Programmer *
Code Complete *
Game Coding Complete 2nd Edition
Game Programming Gems

I can't help on the graphics side I am afraid.

* Not games related but very useful books on general programming practises. Worth a read.

I don't know if you're really keen on using OpenGL, but there is a book called

"Programming role playing games for DirectX"

It also explains how a game engine works (you're writing one yourself)

And what is 'advanced' c++?

For an advanced book on c++, I would recommend The C++ Programming Language. It's written by Bjarne Stroustup, the guy who created C++. I would recommend picking up another c++ before hand, but if you want to learn c++ well you should definitely get it, read it and reread it.

The C++ Programming Language is an excellent book, however, it's better as a reference than a learning book.

What about "c++ from the ground up 3rd edition"
It teaches the entire c++ language (and SDL)
It was written by Herbert Schildt.
He was one of the guys who standardized c++
