What a mess this book is, starting with the title - what's with the boots? We never find out! O.o
But that's not the only glitch here, too many things don't make any kind of sense to me. My personal pet peeve is Querry's inability to hold onto any kind of weapon. The poor guy always loses it within the first two minutes of a fight.
Very chaotic writing, plot twists and turns to keep you as confused as possible.
