A vida nos últimos dias da Velha República podia ser feita de asilos destelhados, comida escassa e escravidão em sapatarias clandestinas. Pelo menos era assim a vida do pequeno Camundo, um menino de doze anos, que era capaz de mudar o futuro através de misteriosos desenhos que fazia. O que Camundo não sabia era que outros como ele, amantes da pictomancia, há muito já prediziam o futuro, e que uma sociedade secreta, conhecida por Asseclas do Lagarto, viam neste Dom parte de um plano vil. Bolas de madeira, mitos de uma Terra Oca e criaturas que têm medo do sol são apenas alguns dos estranhos mistérios que Camundo terá de desvendar.
