A cadre of four siblings, three boys and one girl, the eldest being Ichiro, a boy of 13, live without their parents in Serran, the capital of The Spirit Island as their parents are sailors and hardly ever meet them. Everything goes well. But of course, only as long as god wants it to. On his thirteenth birthday Ichiro receives a letter and a gift apparently from their parents. The letter claims their parents to be dead and the gift being the fabled spirit fruits. There are instead four metallic spheres in the box. Definitely not something a human can digest. None of them believes the letter, but when Ayami, the youngest of the four, takes a bite from one of those four supposed-to-be-fruits, and Ichiro follows, they are gifted with supernatural powers. Following the instructions of the letter, they then start training with the newly-gifted powers and on Ichiros fourteenth birthday, set off on a journey to revive their parents by defeating the evil soul, the one that has managed to keep the Spirit God a captive. To become worthy opponents of the evil soul, they have to go through twelve forts at each of which they have to defeat a guardian, most of who arent even humans, and thus obtain more spirit fruits, each one making them stronger. The guardian of the very first fort is an immortal genius and renders the siblings powerless, literally, though a machine called the disc of power. Will they fight through it all? Alone? Definitely not. With some help? Who knows.
She realized suddenly that the sword of darkness was no longer fused to his hand. It had released him once the veil had been severed. Or maybe the fact it was still lodged in his chest was enough of a connection between them.

Through no mere coincidence, all three are drawn to Brewer's Yawn, a recently and bizarrely formed cave in the Deschutes Forest of Central Oregon. There they meet Archibald and Shanna, owners and operators of "The Ore-gone-ian" cafe, who guide them along the way. They discover a sword hidden in the cave that is powerful enough to shape reality. But other forces want the magical artifact, too. The travelers will have to realize their power to stop the malevolent King Karrabad and escape his lair, with the help of some Klamath Native legends.

The South had lost the Civil War and was losing its soul. Uniformed Rebels who had fought honorably in the light of day now wore tattered sheets in the dark and burned crosses. In armed packs they dragged the helpless Negro or Indian from his bed and stopped his hurried prayers with noose or buckshot. In North Carolina’s Robeson county, the Ku Klux did not see the vengeance it was stirring up: Henry Berry Lowery's gang of Swamp Outlaws, who ruthlessly protected themselves and the county's Indians and Negroes. "We kill anyone who hunts us, from Sheriff on down,” Lowery promised, and by forays out of the swamps to keep that promise he became the highest-bountied outlaw in the nation’s history. This tale of bloody revenge and brilliant survival is drawn from the gang’s real victims, benefactors, and descendants – all as told by the Yankee reporter from the New York Herald who joined the gang to get the story.
