Tooth and Claw, by Jo Walton

Tooth and Claw. Jo Walton. If Jane Austen wrote about dragons. Best Thing: Really clever Victorian novel. Worst Thing: It is nearly impossible to sympathize with a sentient species that eats it's own young.

*Technically this is Victorian and Jane Austen is Regency, but I figured Jane Austen was a name you'd recognize. Since every review in the world compares this book (favorably) to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,* I know I'm not the only one.

*This book is much, much better than Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

I love this way of reviewing books. (Here via the author's link.)

The way this is described on the author's archived webpage is pretty perfect:

It's a novel of manners in which all the characters are dragons and eat each other
