Taita il mago, il medico, il poeta, il consigliere intimo del faraone Mamose e poi del figlio, Tamose. Taita, l’uomo che regge nell’ombra le sorti dell’Egitto. Non c’è pace per lui, tanto più ora che ha avuto anche l’arduo compito di occuparsi, come tutore e mentore, delle due vivaci figlie dell’amata regina Lostris, Tehuti e Bakatha, così intelligenti, passionali e così uguali alla madre, di cui Taita è stato amante spirituale e di cui ha raccolto le ultime parole sul letto di morte.
