Tooth and Claw is a fantasy novel written by Jo Walton and published by Tor Books on November 1, 2003. It won the World Fantasy Award for Best Novel in 2004.[1]

Plot summary[edit]

The book's plot is similar to that of a Victorian romance – specifically, Anthony Trollope's novel Framley Parsonage[2] – with the obvious difference that the protagonists are not human beings but dragons. The novel begins with the death of the patriarch of a family of dragons and follows the lives of his children, along with other characters.
