Kobolds are looked down on even by the lowest of society. Laws don't forbid their capture and enslavement, few groups believe them to be worth freeing. One knight doesn't believe in slavery of any sort and when his mission leads him to some kobold slavers he knows exactly how to deal with them. In the process, he gets an unexpected friend and it only snowballs from there. Before long, other adventurers of the land begin to call him by a new name, the kobold whisperer. Tales spread quite far about the man that knows more kobolds than humans, and eventually, he begins questioning the nation at large. His fateful encounters with the kobolds leads him to a bold stance. Merdon, seasoned adventurer, will do anything to free the oppressed lizard race. Even overthrow the king.

While the ending of book 1 was a bit predictible, it was an enjoying tale. Anybody interested in a nice inter-species story should give this a chance.
Good pacing, good foundation for developing three dimensional characters, good setting. All around a great start keep it up!
Like the description of the city. Wondering where the relationship with the knight and the Kobol will develop into.
Interested to see where this goes. Glad that the grammar does not induce headaches. Hoping to see some world building and character development in the coming chapters
So far it's been real good. One of the better novels on the site for sure. Wish there was more stories like this with actual content instead of endless blue screens that serve as a meaningless filler.
I dont review often...and I should. This story is the start of something simply awesome. If you like Kobolds or the lesser races this is a story that does them justice. I wish I could read it all over again for the first time. I wish there were 1000 chapters. This story is amazing and I desperately want more!
I really enjoyed it so far, the characters are interesting and the story stays interesting even in the calm parts
From Merdon's beginnings as a reluctant hero to their entire group's rise in both power and responsibility, this is an engaging story full of real characters. Merdon and Sarel begin a trend by managing to see each other as real people, rather than as separate races. It is a heartwarming facet of an adventurous, often gripping story.
While the style is sometimes slow, and sometimes wordy, these are only minor drawbacks in the shifting perspectives for the story's telling and easily overlooked. The story itself is a thoughtful progression of plot and story arcs and set within a complex, very real feeling universe. Well done, author!
From the rules of magic to the politics of the land to the creatures inhabiting it, the universe of the Kobold Whisperer deserves special mention. Everything fits together in realistic ways with reasonable explanations, where they can be known, at least. Even the kobolds’ non-traditional appearance has a purpose and is not just a random author’s decision. The sub-cultures are rich and enhance the plot and story well.
The weakest point is the story's grammar, but even there it shines well above the average offering on Royal Road. With the well-developed and engaging characters found here, anyone fond of fantasy should be well rewarded by reading this story.
I enjoyed the story so far.
However, I was under the impression that Kobolds are a lizard/dog hybrid looking creature. One where the form is of a bipedal anthro-ish dog with lizard "trimming" such as scales, longer lizard-like tail, lizard-esq fingers with more developed claws. What gives?
Update/spoiler--->no sex scenes :(
