1566. William Harley, Clarenceux King of Arms, has risked his life to protect a secret document, one which could endanger Queen Elizabeth’s legitimacy on the throne. But when his family goes missing, Clarenceux is put to the test. Will he abandon queen and country to save the ones he loves, or sacrifice everything to keep the country from plunging into civil war?

Filled with Mortimer’s signature historical detail, vivid characters, and secret clues that slowly reveal the mystery of Anne Boleyn, The Final Sacrament delivers a gripping conclusion to this Elizabethan adventure, where religious tensions, political intrigue, and personal vendettas collide.
