Just read it over half term. I know, I think I should have realised he was setting up Nicholas to take over from Barak in (hopefully) future novels. I heard he is going to write more set in Elizabeth's reign which would obv be amazing.
I must tell you what happened when I finished Lamentations. I was going away for a few days so thought I should find something by an author whose work I enjoy.
I remembered that Phil Rickman had a new book out so ordered night after night. I really enjoyed the character Sansom had presented for Catherine Parr. How amazed I was to see her emerge as one of the themes in Phil's novel too.
