For the first time in millenia, the all-consuming Darkness has been pushed back. Thanks to Arthur and his ragtag army of women, there’s finally a light at the end of the tunnel. Or there would have been if Mammon, Princess of Greed hadn’t awakened. Powerful enough to level a town with the blink of an eye and ally to no one, Mammon has one goal and one goal only. To own everything in Hell, starting with Arthur and his friends. And if he can’t stop her from taking over while fending off attacks from Hell’s ruling class, well, let’s just say that his chance to stop the Darkness will slip from slim to none.
Enter the Darkness. Kill Everyone. Save the World. When Arthur Curie learns of a chink in the Darkness's armor, he knows it's his chance to turn the tide in a millennia old conflict. There's just one problem. To take that chance, he'll have to risk his entire army, side with a former enemy, and defeat forces of Darkness far greater than he's ever faced before. But you know what they say, no guts, no glory, right?

Arthur never expected to wind up in Hell. At least, not because he found an ancient sword in a pawnshop. To make matters worse, Hell isn't as he thought. It's a desolate wasteland under siege by an all-consuming void known as the Darkness. Now, he's trapped with no way home, a ragtag army of women, and a sword whose only power is to modify the abilities of those around him. Not exactly winning odds. Worse, if the Darkness isn't stopped, not only will it devour Hell, but Earth will be next on the menu.
The Stone that the Builder Refused is the final volume of Madison Smartt Bell’s masterful trilogy about the Haitian Revolution–the first successful slave revolution in history–which begins with All Souls' Rising (a finalist for the National Book Award and the PEN/Faulkner Award) and continues with Master of the Crossroads. Each of these three novels can be read independently of the two others; of the trilogy, The Baltimore Sun has said, “[It] will make an indelible mark on literary history–one worthy of occupying the same shelf as Tolstoy’s War and Peace.” From the Trade Paperback edition.
