9780765319517: Tooth and Claw

A tale of contention over love and money―among dragons

Jo Walton burst onto the fantasy scene with The King's Peace, acclaimed by writers as diverse as Poul Anderson, Robin Hobb, and Ken MacLeod. In 2002, she was voted the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer.

Now Walton returns with Tooth and Claw, 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.

You have never read a novel like Tooth and Claw.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Jo Walton

“The King’s Peace beautifully and thought-provokingly tells a story set in a world and a history almost like ours, but different enough to be in itself a kind of elvenland. It’s good to know that there will be more.”
–Poul Anderson

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

“There is not an ill-written sentence.... Never lacks immediacy or loses its historical quality. Sulien is a soldier first, honorable, capable, and trustworthy, and she is a wonderfully believable character.”
VOYA on The King’s Peace

“War is a tough subject to do well, but in this gritty, moving second and final book in the saga of Tir Tanagiri, British author Walton makes the strife of civil war not only believable but understandable.... Fine work.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review) on The King’s Name

“The pacing is brisk, the emotional impact great....Walton is making page-turners out of her take on Arthur’s Britain.”
Booklist on The King’s Name

About the Author:

Jo Walton's debut novel The King's Peace earned her the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. More recently, Farthing was a finalist for the Nebula Award and the Quill Award, and won the Romantic Times Critic's Choice Award. A native of Wales, she lives in Montreal.
