[PDF KINDLE] (Lord Conrad's Lady Conrad Stargard #5) BY Leo Frankowski
Ecause they now the truth about them p 275 One of the philosophical stupidities of the twentieth century was the confusion of what we think we now with what actually is p 277The battle scenes were extremely well depicted and the political scenes had a fascinating verisimilitude For my taste Frankowski went a little over the top with regard
to his depiction of sexual s for his protagonist but I enjoyed his depiction of sexual s for his protagonist but I enjoyed nonetheless 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 I have to say that this is my favorite time travelling series but this one was the weakest one it really trailed offI felt like after the war with the mongols was won Leo had a panic moment and realized he wanted to have a few fight scenes and finally ill the Tuetonic Il metodo dell'ovulazione. Atlante knightsAll 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 bookWhen 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 withids I do find it to be a bit creepyIf you haven t read the series yet just stop at book 5 unless you really love Conrad its inder that way Seems to be the end of the series and everything is wrapped up I own two books after this one so I assume is to come 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 listThis book was uite 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 learn about what some other
people did during the war Also there is an interesting interlude between Conrad and his American cousinThis book also deals with did during the war Also there is an interesting interlude between Conrad and his American cousinThis book also deals with 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 beforeOne of the things that I love about this series is how Frankowski uses diaries of other characters to reveal parts of Conrad s characterOverall this series has been a fun read blatant sexism finally acknowledged in a foreword that is meant to be tongue in cheek aside I continue to enjoy the books and that that it is well worth the time spent reading it.

of his time and place such as A Connecticut Yankee inhis time and place such as A Connecticut Yankee in 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 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 new 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 the changes in the world The timeline is so changed that where it goes next is fascinating in itself Lol Just lol This series has been pretty interesting and I did enjoy the bringing of the industrial revolution to 13th century Poland But Conrad has become whatever the male euivalent of a Mary Sue character is for me and I am burned out by himAs a woman I
"Find The Misogyny And Extremely "the misogyny and extremely female characters whose only motivation is to jump Conrad s body just pitiful This series would have been a 4 star for me except that I am so annoyed with the playboy like male fantasy aspects that I just can t add that extra starI had high hopes for Lady Francine as a foileual but by the end of the book Conrad s god like sexual powers had once again eaten her brain and self will Yuck Another cipher 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 get factories built And that s just what they do But if you ve hung in there this long you re the type who alikes this whole future history business andor b is craving a long overdue pat on the back for Conrad the unwitting time travelerKeeeeep reading 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 seri.

Es 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 about seven dealing with time travel and paradoxesIn reality Leo Frankowski accomplished for a future citizen of Poland by setting him in a time travel version of medieval
