I started the series greatly enjoying the contrasts between women's roles throughout the eras and the ability to overcome those boundaries, but ended up getting bored with what seemed more like magical flitting back and forth between events without any overarching direction except the desire to rule all the world all the time. The Russian doll concept of the Company ends up being trite, and the battle between the Immortals and the real Company, while I am sure is full of deep symbolism, struck me as being trite and too easily devolved into magic scenarios.I think the fact that I hate the laziness of just so stories (and it just happened!Magic!) probably accounts for my boredom.
