Here is a tale of a family dealing with the death of their father, a son who goes to court 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.

Here is what sounds for all the world like an enjoyable Victorian novel, perhaps by Anthony Trollope…except that everyone in the story is a dragon, red in tooth and claw.

Here are politics and train stations, churchmen and family retainers, 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.

You have never read a novel like Tooth and Claw.

Praise for Tooth and Claw

“Utterly sui generis…It’s a rare book that leaves me wishing it were twice as long, but Tooth and Claw is one such.”—The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction

“A delight. On a basic level, Tooth and Claw works much the same way that Watership Down worked…Highly recommended for anyone who loved the books of Austen, or Heyer (or Laurie Colwin's more contemporary novels, for that matter), and wishes that someone was still writing social comedies that were just as sharp and just as pleasurable.”—Kelly Link, author of Stranger Things Happen

“Jo Walton writes with an authenticity that never loses heart.”—Robin Hobb
