The lore surrounding the Guild Wars saga is about to get a bit thicker. Ghosts of Ascalon, the first original Guild Wars novel is scheduled to hit bookshelves this summer and set the stage for the release of Guild Wars 2. Authored by Jeff Grubb and Matt Forbeck, the book chronicles the centuries long conflict between the Ascalons and Charr.

Desperate to defend his land from advancing hordes of bestial charr, King Adelbern summoned the all-powerful Foefire to repel the invaders. But magic can be a double-edged sword—the Foefire burned both charr and human alike. While the charr corpses smoldered, the slain Ascalonians rose again, transformed by their king's rage into ghostly protectors and charged with guarding the realm—forever. The once mighty kingdom became a haunted shadow of its former glory.
