A family of dragons gathers on the occasion of the death of their father, the elder Bon Agornin. As is custom, they must eat the body. But even as Bon's last remains are polished off, his sons and daughters must all jostle for a position in the new hierarchy. While the youngest son seeks greedy remuneration through the courts of law, the eldest son - a dragon of the cloth - agonises over his father's deathbed confession. While one daughter is caught between loyalty to her family by blood and her family by marriage, another daughter follows her heart - only to discover the great cost of true love... Here is a Victorian story of political intrigue, family ties and political intrigue, set in a world of dragons - a world, quite literally, red in tooth and claw. Full of fiery wit, this is a novel unlike any other.

Utterly sui generis . . . It's rare a book that leaves me wishing it were twice as long, but Tooth and Claw is one such. * The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction * Walton writes with an authenticity that never loses heart. -- Robin Hobb The Pride and Prejudice of the dragon world... I love this sly, witty, fast-paced, brilliant little book. -- Jane Yolen
