In a land ruled by vile monsters, where death is common and life is cruel, one outcast endeavors to have it all. While there are many misconceptions related to goblins, such as their horrid looks or lack of intelligence, their small stature isn't one. But, that doesn't stop Stryg from aspiring to his belief of greatness: power, prestige, and food with salt.
When fate drags Stryg from his forest home and into the ruthless city of Hollow Shade he must learn that some monsters live everywhere.

    Status: chapter 32: the wall of hollow...

    Well the story is OK I guess but it's misrepresented.

    I mostly came for specific tags in the story. But I feel I got scammed. That's why I will give a low review to warn people who come for the same tags.

    The ones I came here for specifically where:

    Tags: Antihero Protagonist, Harem-seeking Protagonist, Polygamy, R-18, Ruthless Protagonist, Strength-based Social Hierarchy, Vampires

    Looking at these tags I would have expected him to be smart & ruthless. I expected the story to go along the line of.

    -Goblin is born different

    -Smarter then most of his peers

    -Top of his clan & soon to be leader

    -Wanting to get stronger

    -Somewhat special

    And then the normal kingdom / clan building. Trying to survive (with his clan / whatever). Slowly expanding there terrain. Yet what we got is a whiny bitch of and MC that does noting but complain all the time about how he is different & stuff. Also I feel the story is SUPER slow. Like noting happens at all. To me its just kind of boring. Also the author makes sure to remind the reader every chapter how STUPID the MC is.

    Stryg was a moron.

    Hot water poured down on him as he shook in frustration. Of course the water can become hot. He had seen steam coming out of several other cubicles. He had just been too stupid to put one and two together.

    This goes on & on & on & on. I don't know about you but this seriously is starting to piss me off. The world is also f**ked. Sure some may like it but to me its way to mild. Ooo no yo can't kill yadi yadi ya. Its a monster world for god sake.....

    There is also no power system whatsoever?

    Like how are we to know who is stronger & how strong is MC & how strong is x person. There is absolute no explanation whatsoever. Sure you can say it will be said later but its just odd. I'm probably already 75k words in and there is no explanation about power,...

    MC also keeps bringing up his sh*tty clan for some reason that treated him like sh*t for all his life. Yet he seems to be so attached to them for some reason. At least a few times every chapter. He is just plain stupid if you ask me and and absolute disappointment.

    To me it feels this story will be dragged on and on and on with noting really happening. Its not a good slice of life either. MC also has no enemies & there is no sign of anyone anytime soon. Same goes for lovers & harem & r18 & antihero MC &...

    All in all its OK if you like this kind of story but its definitely not for me. It just reads as a bad and boring slice of life.

    So if you are looking for a smart MC & harem & R-18 & antihero & OP MC
    Go look somewhere else.

    ignore the tags.  ignore the beginning chapters.  ignore the seemingly well constructed character types, cuz that sh*t is going to take a nosedive.

    this story stopped being everything advertised about halfway through and became the authors attempt at emotional dribble propaganda and masks it as storytelling.

    let me tell you, all of the character growth is implausible, forced, and awkward, and you'll notice all the meaningful interactions that lead characters to become closer seems to happen in between chapters 'off-screen', as well as being inconsistent as it changes chapter to chapter in an almost episodic fashion.

    the rational, perceptive, troubled MC you start with becomes an idiotic, whiny worthless little mess of a bitch with... angsty (?) melodramatic (?) issues, completely backtracking from everything at the start of the story.  you'll really get the sensation of being in a moving vehicle on the freeway while the author/driver slams on the breaks. 

    dont expect this to hold up, at all, to any sort of monster/fantasy story you've ever heard of.  the characters are cardboard cut-outs of "pretty white kids with problems" from that old madtv sketch.  in other words the author took a monster genre skin, then pasted after school special level human drama on it.  it would be 100% accurate representation to remove every single monster/beastkin/dragon tag so far and replace it with the different races/nationalities you'd find in california, and switch the setting to a middle - upper class suburban neighborhood school story.  oh, I guess add magic?  so, harry potter? 

    realized it soon as I typed it.  this is an angsty harry potter with monsters instead of kids

    Status: chapter 68: …comes around

    It started really good. But even the wisest and older mages keep doing the same mistakes over and over. We try to talk to the author (at least I tried, and it was ignored)  

    For example:

    Spoilers: The MC never had his magic tested, for all we know he may have all magic colors.. He has a strange biology faster than a vamp, stronger than an orc and NOBODY tries to examine him. SPECIALLY his master that promised to take care of him the best possible, promised to test him. Several times. Yet. Nothing. And worst. Nobody asks NOTHING of nobody. You are a friend of a person for one year and dont even know her mother? His master accepted him and dont even ask all his life story? I'm really close to dropping each chapter used to make me wait for it.  Now it's just disappointing.

    Status: chapter 128

    I originally had written a pretty long review explaining my gripes. But I realized it might have gone against the guidelines as it is hard to explain my issues with this story without going into vague details. Just note this book is tagged heavily incorrectly it may change in the next 200 or so chapters but the adult, r-18, harem, ecchi tags shouldn't be there (if one chapter out of 86 is justification for having it just rework the chapter and retag the story). They need to add girl love as so far there are 3 chapters dedicated to it (the characters these chapters revolve around are important side characters so I imagine this will be repeated more often).  The plot relys heavily on plot armor and the MC essential being a fish out of water he is only barely starting to make an effort to change that but not really. The MC is lacking quite a bit and the growth is minimal at best. It's ok outside of the MC and the blatant mistagging. This is a skip if you expect your R-18 stories to not fade to black you don't need to have s*x every chapter but if it does happen why do so if it's tagged like this. Also a skip if you can't stand plot armor and the fish out of water stuff for to long oh it's not done in a cute way either he is an awful person. 

     Edit: This is a hard skip unless you like psychopathic MC with plot armor so thick you can shoot a rpg at it and still not even leave a dent. They do a chosen one sorta thing but make him too stupid and psychotic so he doesn't steam roll everything. Aside from burning a bridge with a friend he has suffered zero consequences for any of his actions whatsoever. The author dangles in front of your face for a really long time some sort of change or development in the MC but it's really minor and lip service is all it gets really. You get one or two scenes where he has slightly developed but it is immediately erased because he reverts to the same guy from the start of the story. It's like he doesn't have a brain or is incapable of learning. Oh almost forgot the MC is heavily racist and freaks out when it's done to him and while he is called out once it never goes anywhere.  This is a bullied child's fantasy discover your somehow special and then take out years of repressed anger on everyone to an extreme degree over even minor insults.

    Tldr: story is about if Harry Potter was a slightly horny (emphasis on the slight) sociopath.

    I went into this story with the synopsis and came out with more than I bargained for in the first place. I never knew how much I enjoy a monsters/multiracial story like this one before. It is diverse from the characters cast, and all of them feel well fleshed out. The dialogs are a good example for me to study when I want to write dialogs for my own story. 

    The story follow our main protagonist named Stryg, which I would say is an easy and memorable name. His background depiction from chapter 1 was amazing, and well executed with enough information that I can understand his characteristics. He is a short 3' 7" bluish goblin, and I am still fascinated with how he look, but I think I got a good enough image based on the texts. The author had obviously taken the time to plan this story out, which is shown in the story. The readers can feel the energy from the characters, even from the first 10 chapters. That my friends speak volume about the characters in this story.

    The author's grammar is better than mine, so I will leave it at that. Although there will be occasions where a sentence can be wonky to read, but it is still readable nonetheless. The pacing of both the writing and story is phenomenal, hence that doesn't leave much for me to discuss on that part. The plot is flowing out steady, and the main character's traits stay consistent enough that I don't go doubting the story's progress. The story will drag and pull you in when you get past chapter 10 or earlier for some people. There were a couple of times I question their society, yet, I can still follow why it is the way it is. 

    I am an amateur writer, and I can say that this story was a blast to read. Respect to the author for pumping this much content out, also thanks for showing examples of how to weave show and tell. Go check out the story and stop wandering in the review section!! =D 

    Peace out!!

    Loving the story so far!

    The story starts a little dark, which is not really my thing, but makes sense in the context of the story. It doesn't last that long and we get a good academy-type arc. 

    I love the world-building, the locations are well-described and feel legitimate. The political system (upperclass/commoners) is okay and isn't too exaggerated. Magic is a major focus and is well designed. There are also multiple races which also makes sense and is used as a good plot point. 

    Favorite part of the story so far are the characters. Some chapters have POV changes which show thought process of different characters and do a great job characterizing them. All the characters feel real and not gimmicky/tropey. 

    Would recommend reading, will update my review when more chapters are out

    Status: chapter 40: my fault

    I really feel this is a great story. The MC doesnt feel unrelateable and while he is overly violent it makes sense given his backstory. And while he does have a tendency towards violence, the MC doesn't feel cruel.

    Great writing and character development makes me feel like this story has a bright future.

    Came for the Monster Girl's and R-18, stayed because it's the best thing I've ever read on this site and has become one of my favorite novels of all time.  I didn't come expecting anything but god the characters are actually f**king awesome!  The author keep's mystery in the story and is not predictable.  The characters actually have flaws and experience growth, they suffer setbacks, their are real consequences and rewards.  I truly can't say enough good things about the novel.  My only gripe is that I want more R-18!!!
