Pre Roman Britain where they eat potatoes????

The book starts off a bit slow and strange but after a quarter the hero goes on a quest and that part if full of riddles and mysteries.

I wonder what symbolism the author had in mind what is Ida. Stress creating bad behavior? That part stays a bit odd but for the rest it is a captivating story that made me think of the computergame I once played what was based on Lord of the Rings. 

Weird but intriguing. And written definitely by someone who loves dogs
