[Leo Frankowski] ✓ Lord Conrad's Lady (Conrad Stargard, #5) [chad PDF] Read Online Õ In this fifth book of the Conrad Stargard series, the Mongols are finally and utterly defeated outside the gates of Three Walls The Crossman, a group that Conrad has tangled with before, are next on his list.
This book was quite interesting in the we get to see parts of the war that were alluded to, but never delivered to the reader in the previous book, such as the tragedy of East Gate, as well as learnabout what some other people did during the war Also, there is an interesting interlude between Conrad and his American cousin.
This book also deals with some of the political issues at the time and how Conrad chooses to deal with them This brings out a side and skill in Lady Francine that was never shown so openly before.
One of the things that I love about this series is how Frankowski uses diaries of other characters t I have to say that this is my favorite time travelling series, but this one was the weakest one, it really trailed off.
I felt like after the war with the mongols was won, Leo had a panic moment and realized he wanted to have a fewfight scenes and finally kill the Tuetonic knights.
All well and good if that was the focus, but it trails off into long segments about law, and guilt, and even though some of Conrad s musings are interesting, overall it takes away from the direction of the book.
When I read these the first time I don t think the age differences between Conrad and his ladies bothered me but I was like 16 Now as an adult with kids I do find it to be a bit creepy.
If you haven t read the series yet, just stop at book 5 unless you really love Conrad, its kinder that way.
This book loses all control of the series for me In this one the time travel starts to get really screwed up and the interludes containing it don t really add to the story that well Conrad marries Lady Francine and she tries to get him made King but he circumvents that because he is too busy being an engineer It leads to the breakup of their relationship but he rewards himself with a few young things to keep him busy Really lose respect for the character in this book read at your own risk.
I m really not sure how to shelve Lord Conrad s Lady on my virtual shelves It might be science fiction since it deals with time travel as part of the book s meta set up, but except in a couple of spots, it doesn t really deal with time travel Time travel is just back there And even when the premise of time travel behind above this series of books is revealed late in this volume, it seems like one shard of reality is close enough to several shards of reality that history is either so relative that it doesn t matter or so resilient due to exponential replication that it doesn t matter Yet, you should be aware, if you read this volume, that one spends 290 pages in an alternative medieval Poland and only ab In this fifth book of the Conrad Stargard series, the Mongols are finally and utterly defeated outside the gates of Three Walls The Crossman, a group that Conrad has tangled with before, are next on his list.

To me, this book is where the series started to go downhill While the book was overall enjoyable, it starts to feel like the author has stopped caring as much about the characters and the setting Conrad starts to act less like the character we knew in the previous books Maybe that was intentional, though, and is meant to show how power corrupts It feels less like an intentional change, though, than just the author not caring as much about internal consistencyor maybe it s just a reflection of the changes in the author s life Whatever the case, from this book on, the characters become less and less likeable and realistic It s still fun to read, overall, but with the original plot line resolved, the most interesting parts of the book aren t the characters any , but t Essef Vacation In Peaceful Medieval Poland See The Ancient City Of Cracow Burn Wallow In The Frightful Murder Of Noblewomen And Children At The Invincible Castle Of East Gate Enjoy The Attack Of The Crazy Old Ladies At Sir Miesko S Manor Watch The Regretful Demise Of The Remaining Mongols As They Drown In The Cesspool At Three Walls Consider Various Offers Made To Conrad Stargard By Eager Blondes Of Just Barely Marriageable Age Notice His Wife, The Formidable Lady Francine, Getting Annoyed Book 5 seems superfluous, as the first four books take you through the war with the Mongols, which had been the overarching plotline throughout With that done, what s left to do except engage in politics and getfactories built And that s just what they do But if you ve hung in there this long, you re the type who a likes this whole future history business, and or b is craving a long overdue pat on the back for Conrad, the unwitting time traveler.
Keeeeep reading I love books that take a character and move him out of his time and place such as A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur s Court, or The Chronicles of Narnia This is one of my favorites I love the world building I could do without all the sex with nubile young women, but I m not offended by it Wrap up from the war with the mongols It is not necessary to complete the series, but it is still a good fun read.
Incredibly good series The baisc man out of time story line but very involved Excellent characters and story Highly recommended.
