Conrad's Latest Adventure,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lord Conrad's Crusade (Paperback)
The latest Conrad Stargard book is an enjoyable read, but it's not Frankowski's best work. It was some typos and editing problems, but they don't detract from the story.
Conrad is bored; he hasn't faced any new challenges in years, so he decides to go on "Vacation" to points unknown, alone. Not even Conrad Stargard can foresee every possible problem and he finds himself sick, maimed, and enslaved. He always felt that slavery was a crime against God, and being slave didn't change his mind. So Conrad did the sort thing that Conrad does, I don't want to spoil the story, but we get another classic Conrad Stargard book out the situation.
Before Conrad left Poland, the Pope (Ignacio) and the King (Henryk) were trying to order him to "Re-Take" the Holy Lands from the "Infidel Moslems". He refused pointing out that they had Polish Citizen's who were Moslems, so he couldn't see attacking someone based on their religion, and that the Christian Church couldn't "Re-Take" property that they had never owned. He suggested that they "Take" the Holy Land through trade and good works instead. Ignacio and Henryk became very upset about this, and in my opinion forgot who put them on their thrones, so they started the Crusade while Conrad was on "Vacation".
The novel wraps up these loose ends and gives "Uncle Tom" a challenge to overcome that may make life interesting for him and may give us a new book in the future.

Did it ever occur to you that this seems somewhat distant and discordant because Leo Frankowski is DEAD and this is probably the fleshing out of an outline left behind.

Did you realize you're replying to a post from 7 years ago? In fact, the late Mr. Frankowski was still alive when that comment was written.
