'Song of Ice and Fire' synopsis?

Song of Ice and Fire review/primer?

'Dance of Dragons' has just arrived from the local library, but it has been quite some time since I read 'Feast of Crows'. Since I only have the book for a couple of weeks I do not really have the time to go back and re-read the previous books. Is there any good synopsis of the story so far on the web?

The Tower of the Hand has an awesome chapter-by-chapter synopsis of each of the books as well as an extensive wiki.

Ooops, I meant 'Dance with Dragons'

It's been a while for me, too, but Dance does a pretty good job with briefly and gently reminding you what you need to remember here and there. So, you're probably fine jumping right in.

A really exhaustive pulling-together of background world detail as well as book recaps in four parts:

Part One.
Part Two.
Part Three.
Part Four.

Came here to recommend the summary that Drastic recommended. I've read each of the books several times, and I still learned a great deal reading those summaries - especially about the history pre-Game of Thrones.

Where Everybody Is Before A Dance With Dragons Begins may be a handy resource. Tor.com has a bunch of articles and reviews on the subject as well.

Yeah, since the first half(or so? not sure how much, haven't finished it yet) of DwD is concurrent with Feast of Crows, it's pretty easy to let the book catch you up...read the foreword, which should reassure you as well.

The wikipedia entries for each of the previous books have well written summaries.
