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.… (mere)

    Framley Parsonage af 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 af 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… (mere)

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. ( )

A hilarious and also slightly grim comedy of manners, riffing off Anthony Trollope in a society of cannibalistic dragons. It's well imagined, and of course in today's context of querying the roots of Victorian prosperity it seems rather appropriate to highlight the violent foundations of the entire nineteenth-century social system. Not a lot more to say than that: good fun, respectful of the source material and also a decent creation in its own right. ( )

Well written but silly. A historical parody of Victorian fiction, but instead of people we have families of dragons. They express no dragon behaviors and are almost cut-out humans who occasionally get to fly and eat each other, but mostly wear hats and sleep in mansions.

Three siblings go their different ways when their father dies. They're prevented form eating him as is custom, by their brother-in-law who's the jerk of the story and claims all the resources for his own family. Instead the sisters try to find marriage prospects whilst living on the charity of their extended families. There's lots of somewhat daft he's not good enough for you' type of conversations and similar concerns about propitiatory especially for only the women who aren't allowed to hunt etc. There's a complex hierarchy of ranks, and smeo fun world-building where the dragons had fought with humanity and lost, but are now more-or-less civilized, and living in their own country.

The biggest issue I had was with all the buildings, where the true scale of dragons was ignored to become just inhabitants of big rooms, and it never really seemed believable. Mostly I think it's the faux-historical mannerisms that I didn't get on with, the dragon politics in a more sensible setting might have been fun. ( )

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

This is for my aunt, Mary Lace, for coming so far down the road towards fantasy for me, and for coming down so many other roads with me, plenty of them real as well as metaphorical.
