The Iron Teeth: A Goblin's Tale

by ClearMadness

Original COMPLETED Adventure Comedy Fantasy Anti-Hero Lead Grimdark Magic Male Lead Non-Human lead

A new, darker age is dawning. The greed of kings has ignited a seemingly endless war. As men fight, the monsters of the untamed wilds are devouring the frontier. Villages are abandoned as fields go fallow. Murderous bandits roam the desolation. 

None of that matters to a nameless goblin slave. He just wants to eat as much food as he can shove into his mouth when no one is looking, but fate runs a twisted course, so instead he is whisked away to the far off Iron Teeth Mountains. To stay alive, he will have to evolve into something more than a simple goblin, and carve a bloody path through the forests of the North. 

However, first he has to get over his crippling fear of trees, and survive in a place where everything considers him to be the perfect size for a quick snack...

A progressive tale of a goblins rise to power and his survival, steady character development and slow progression of his power make it more fun to read. The world looks quite solid and well developed at least for now. There are quite a few characters with their own well developed traits and stories. Althrough him being a goblin and one of his races driving purposes are lust, so him lacking substancial female development saddens me a bit. All in all it is still a very good story, with steady and frequant releases and perfect grammar. Keep on rolling! :D

Read it. You will not regret it.

A great story, that is well written. Has a nice style and from the perspective of a weak goblin! Follow him through his trials of survival in a world that everything is bigger than himself!

I strongly recommend this story to anyone that loves true fantasy settings. From the perspective of said "monster"! The world is interesting (albeit you are in the dark alot of the time, since you are following a goblin with little to no knowledge of the world) and I will greedily see where this story will lead!

Good work author. Ill be following you on your website. Sadly, wont be able to be a patron. Since my economy is about to have me "evicted". :P

Keep up the good work

really good read, it interesting and we see a lot of the characters thoughts fears and emotions, which I personally enjoy. great writing and grammar, Im always scared if the green goblin will end up doing something bad, like kill the wrong person because of emotions or something. So far so good at least. Im really wondering if he will evolve like RE:monster or if he will stop at a certain point. Both ways I believe can be good but if he doesnt change at all it may and I mean mayyyy feel a bit frozen, but that can obviously be overcome by moving to new areas growing a clan etc etc. anyways really enjoying it thanks for taking the time and I love the non rushed writing style. PEACE.

A true Fantasy work of art

This story is a beautiful work that easily captures the essence of a full blown world.

The story includes fascinating detail of world building revealed to the reader as our Main Character a Goblin named Blacknail develops through the story.

Unlike many other stories where creatures people and events seem like simple plot elements the author has managed to portray The main characters adventure under the bandit Cheif Herald.

 

Creatures all fit into the world as wild animals in a dnagerous wilderness rather than a plot element of kill this as they are evil.

Bandits are displayed as a result of a long drawn out conflict that is continuously fleshed out through dialogue.

While small details these interactions of characters and slow incremental revelations of the world as our MC discovers the world himself and his tribe.

 

Any fan of true fantasy seeking a whole and complete world with a unique and true system believable creature and people all seamlessly coming togetehr to form a full story, well this is for you don't miss this series!

A needle in a haystack

This story represents all that stories in royalroad has been missing.  An actual plot. The author makes an actual world that entraps readers. If your looking for a satisfying story and not just an overpowered MC's tales of nothing, look here

good writing , interesting story and lovable character ? YES SIR !

the title says it , but I'm gonna try expending here a little. The story is a non typical RRL story , meaning it doesn't include ( for now ? ) any reincarnation or VR setting. I have to admit it goes a little slow ( comparing the length and the story covered , what takes 7 chapters here would usually take 1 or 2 chapters on most other RRL fictions ) but the quality of the story and writing ( this near perfect writing is so enjoyable to read when you're used to RRL *_* ) makes up for it by a large margin. The Main character is atypical but you will still find yourself swept in his rythme. 

I'm holding myself away from a real " advanced review " for now because I really feel that the story has much more to give than it has right now , and I don't feel comfortable reviewing something that's obviously still in the starting blocks. 

Until then , get my follow and I hope the story gets the hype it should

After I Read This I Find It Hard To Like Other Stories

Yup just like the other reviews say this is what you would get when you open a book, a REALLY GOOD BOOK I must say. I just know that this story is heading in a good direction and that it wont disappoint me.

of the 23 or so chapters I’ve read so far the story is just phenomenal. The grammar is close to perfect, the characters & world building is really at the top of RRL, there arent many english web novels that I’ve read that can stand up to this.

One of my all time favorites. I love the setting and the characters. I do hope Herad gets more sides to her personality. I don't know if this is just a coincidence but the story reminds me of Dragon's Dogma(DD Dark Arisen). Just a question, but will he evolve into an ogre or another variant later?
