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 equivalent of a 'Mary Sue' character is for me and I am burned out by him.

As a woman, I find the misogyny and extremely weak 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

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 re ...more

I dunno, maybe I'm numb at this point, but somehow this one felt more worthwhile than the previous two. The author tied up some of the loose ends which had annoyed me, the character of Francine approached a slim approximation of an actual human woman, a feat for this author, and I guess I'm becoming inoculated against how annoyingly righteous the protagonist is.

Or maybe I'm glad to be one book away from being finished with this series. Being something of a completionist, I must be faced with so

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 consistency...or maybe it's just a reflectio ...more

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 few more fight 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.

I enjoyed the whole series

It is a great read one I would read again. It does cause one to think about ones way of living.

By far the weakest in the series, maybe there's simply not enough substance in Conrad or frankowski to justify so many instalments

Not as good as the first four but still OK

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 more factories 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.
