Argat is a West Taren province; it has a bustling city by the same name, which is known for its crowded streets and tireless vendors peddling their wares. One might think of Argat as the New York City of Taren. This is the place to go if you are into lively music, parties and lots of company. It is in Argat where Rayna cheats death and meets Quan and Emawin—two pivotal supporting characters in the story. This is also the city where “prospectors” prey on the weak, and thieving jesters are no laughing matter to their victims. To say that Rayna experiences culture shock while in Argat is an understatement. Luckily, Keris and Quan are there to keep her out of (much) trouble. You can read more about Rayna and her adventures in The Beast at the Gate. Order a copy and be amazed.
