"Non c'è pace per Taita, l'uomo che nell'ombra regge le sorti dell'Egitto, fedele consigliere del Faraone, medico, poeta, sacerdote e inventore. Tanto più ora che ha l'arduo compito di occuparsi, come tutore e mentore, delle due vivaci figlie della regina Lostris, Tehuti e Bakatha, intelligenti, belle e passionali almeno quanto la madre, di cui Taita è stato amante spirituale e di cui ha raccolto le ultime parole in punto di morte. Un onere, per quanto gradevole, al quale si aggiungono gli affari di stato e la minaccia degli hyksos, i nemici di sempre, che hanno preso possesso del delta del Nilo costringendo il Faraone a ritirarsi nel Sud del paese. Abile stratega, tanto sulla tavola del bao quanto nell'intessere intrighi politici, Taita sa che per tentare di scacciare definitivamente gli invasori deve chiedere l'appoggio del re di Creta, il potente Minosse. Muovendo le sue pedine con raffinata maestria, spiana la strada verso l'alleanza con lui. Ma ogni coalizione vuole un pegno in cambio. E il pegno è un sacrificio estremo per Taita. Dopo mille peripezie attraverso il deserto, Taita s'imbarca a malincuore in un viaggio che potrebbe cambiare per sempre il futuro della sua amata patria, portando in dono a Minosse due vergini, Tehuti e Bakatha. Le due giovani donne, però, più inclini alle regole del cuore che alla ragion di stato, si sono ormai innamorate del luogotenente di Taita e di un altro ufficiale, e il sacerdote teme che le trattative con il re di Creta possano saltare. Ma le minacce che incombono sul loro destino sono ancora più imponenti..."--
