Tooth and Claw by Jo Walton Summary

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.

Tooth and Claw by Jo Walton Summary

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. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Nature Red in Tooth and Claw by Michael Murray Summary

While the problem of evil remains a perennial challenge to theistic belief, little attention has been paid to the special problem of animal pain and suffering. This absence is especially conspicuous in our Darwinian era when theists are forced to confront the fact that animal pain and suffering has gone on for at least tens of millions of years, through billions of animal generations. Evil of this sort might not be especially problematic if the standard of explanations for evil employed by theists could be applied in this instance as well. But there is the central problem: all or most of the explanations for evil cited by theists seem impotent to explain the reality of animal pain and suffering through evolutionary history. Nature Red in Tooth and Claw addresses the evil of animal pain and suffering directly, scrutinizing explanations that have been offered for such evil.

When her life before Easterville comes back for her, she'll have to grapple with her moon blessed mate, Kendrick Biel, and the complicated past they share.Back on packs lands, Lee will have to choose between the life she's been living in Easterville and the mate who forced her there in the first place. After ten years apart, has Kendrick changed enough for Lee to trust he could ever truly love the dud?"You knew what I was to you for years before the accident," I whispered afraid if I spoke with my full voice I'd lose control, "you should have protected me. But you didn't. You let me...." I couldn't finish the sentence. He knew what he'd allowed to happen. He'd been there. It was my first shift and the first time I'd felt the pull of my mate. The same pull I was feeling for the man sitting across the narrow bar, "you need to leave," I said finally getting the strength to repeat the words he'd said to me all those years ago, "I don't want you here."

Tooth And Claw by Doranna Durgin Summary

Assigned to help evacuate the planet Ntigano before the total failure of its sun, the crew of the Starship Enterprise are engaged in delicate negotiations with the only people who can help them: a proud and volatile neighbouring race known as the Tsorans. To assist their efforts, Riker and Worf are assigned a different diplomatic task. As a show of friendship and good faith, they are serving as honor guards to a young Tsoran prince, accompanying him to a royal hunting preserve. There, a combination of technology-damping fields and some of the galaxy's deadliest predators are supposed to test the skills of the young Tsoran noble in the 'kaphoora' - the hunt. When their shuttlecraft crashes inside the preserve, however, what should have been a civilised formality turns into a terrifying struggle for survival. Cut off from both Tsora and the Enterprise, without the benefit of either tricorders or phasers, Riker, Worf and their royal charge must fight for their lives with the only resources they have: spear and bat'leth - tooth and claw.
