Publisher Description

In a style that one reviewer has likened to ‘Monty Python meets Terry Pratchett’, the author continues his chronicles of the history of the Dogsbreath family with the exploits of the earliest known ancestor of the current Ivor Dogsbreath.


Ivor the Dogsbreath, so called because of his rampant halitosis which he contracted at the age of five is an itinerant tinker who with the aid of a manky old cart, which is a family heirloom, plies his trade between the settlements of the plains. ‘Persuaded’ to team up with a giant barbarian warrior, a foul-mouthed little dwarf and a gay elf he sets off on a quest of vengeance and to rescue the Princess Poolipong from the clutches of the Dark Lord of Cumquat.


Contains strong language and adult humour.


‘Keven Shevels introduced us to Ivor Dogsbreath in his contemporary comedy novel 'The Haddock Flies at Midnight'. Now in 'A Song of Ice and Haddock' he delves back into the anals (sic) of the family's history to bring us an epically hilarious fantasy tale of derring-do (or derring-don't in the case of the ancestor also called Ivor) a la Tolkien and George R. R. Martin.

The book recounts the story of a group of brave, eclectic though sometimes rather inept warriors who set out to kill the Dark Lord of Cumquat and his crony, the formidable Red Witch, to help Colon the Barbarian avenge his brother's death. The company consists of a dwarf, an elf, three princesses, several Wildmen, a number of Wikings, various other assorted folk and Ivor, who isn't sure why he's there, doesn't want to be there and does his all to avoid doing anything that looks remotely brave. Will they eventually achieve their goal without the aid of a satnav in the face of such powerful magic or will the witch's love of a drop of the hard stuff on the side prove to be the Dark Lord's undoing. I'll leave you to find out.

The author's zany style lends itself admirably to fantasy writing and I look forward to reading his forays into the other genres that he's promised us in the future, especially the crime thriller. If you too are a fan of the sublime and the ridiculous, you will probably love anything the author throws at you!’
