A tale of contention over love and money - among dragons. Jo Walton returns with a very different kind of fantasy story: the tale of a family dealing with the death of their father, of a son who goes to law for his inheritance, a son who agonizes over his father's deathbed confession, a daughter who falls in love, a daughter who becomes involved in the abolition movement, and a daughter sacrificing herself for her husband. Except that everyone in the story is a dragon, red in tooth and claw. Here is a world of politics and train stations, of churchmen and family retainers, of courtship and country houses ... in which, on the death of an elder, family members gather to eat the body of the deceased. In which society's high-and-mighty members avail themselves of the privilege of killing and eating the weaker children, which they do with ceremony and relish, growing stronger thereby.… (més)

    Framley Parsonage de Anthony Trollope (InfoQuest)
    InfoQuest: As Walton notes in the book's introduction, Trollope's Framley Parsonage provides some of the plot and characters for Tooth and Claw and is a very good Victorian novel (of the Barsetshire series, though it can easily stand alone).

    The Magicians and Mrs. Quent de Galen Beckett (Mint.ChocolateOcelot)
    Mint.ChocolateOcelot: Tooth and Claw is similar to Magicians & Mrs. Quent because of the Society of it. Things like marrying outside your social class, fancy parties, and where Mr. So-and-so was last night are all issues that characters in both books face. Unless you don't care for books with human characters, I think if you enjoyed Tooth and Claw, you will enjoy The Magicians and Mrs. Quent… (més)

Not even sure how this ended on my shelf. Read it for a change of pace - it at least kept me turning the pages, but I wouldn't seek out more of it. Jane Austen with dragons I think is a fair description. ( )

A Victorian romance where all the characters are dragons: I don't think it can get much better than this!

Yesterday I couldn't go to sleep until 3 AM because I just had to know how the book would end. It was great fun from beginning to end, and the perfect read for Autumn.

Dear Jo Walton, can I have some more of this please? Feel free to turn this into a trilogy, I wouldn't mind! ( )

A friend recommended this book to me and when I went to the library the first time here in US, I saw it and thought I would try. And I loved it! It's a bit like Jane Austen, but with dragons! The world building is awesome and I love that things are not explained, but the culture and the world shines through with the story. I borrowed this from the library, but I definitely need a copy for my personal collection! ( )

Really wonderful novel about medieval society that happens to be about dragons. Fantastic characterisation, cared deeply about the protagonists and amazing true and surprising world building. ( )

I think I was too harsh on this the first time I read it. This is a charming story with a lot of flavor set in a unique world. Its Downton Abbey, but with dragons.

My only critique is that the ending is a bit too saccharine and easy - I would have liked for tensions at the trial to ratchet up a bit. ( )

Man, her last work, who seem'd so fair,
Such splendid purpose in his eyes,
Who roll'd the psalm to wintry skies,
Who built him fanes of fruitless prayer,

Who trusted God was love indeed
And love Creation's final law—
Tho' Nature, red in tooth and claw
With ravine, shriek'd against his creed—

Who loved, who suffer'd countless ills,
Who battled for the True, the Just,
Be blown about the desert dust,
Or seal'd within the iron hills?

No more? A monster then, a dream,
A discord. Dragons of the prime,
That tare each other in their slime,
Were mellow music match'd with him.

Alfred, Lord Tennyson, from
In Memoriam AHH, 1850.
She'd like me to bring a dragon home, I suppose. It would serve her right if I did, some creature that would make the house intolerable to her.

Anthony Trollope, Framley Parsonage, 1859
