Description

Sister Souljah, the hip-hop generation's number one author and most compelling storyteller, delivers a powerful story about love and loyalty, strength and family. In her bestselling novel, The Coldest Winter Ever, Sister Souljah introduced the world to Midnight, a brave but humble lieutenant to a prominent underworld businessman. Now, in a highly anticipated follow-up to her million-selling masterpiece, she brings readers into the life and dangerously close to the heart of this silent, fearless young man.

Raised in a wealthy, influential, Islamic African family, Midnight enjoys a life of comfort, confidence, and protection. Midnight's father provides him with a veil of privilege and deep, devoted love, but he never hides the truth about the fierce challenges of the world outside of his estate. So when Midnight's father's empire is attacked, he sends Midnight with his mother to the United States.

In the streets of Brooklyn, a young Midnight uses his Islamic mind-set and African intelligence to protect the ones he loves, build a business, reclaim his wealth and status, and remain true to his beliefs.

Midnight, a handsome and passionate young man, attracts many women. How he interacts and deals with them is a unique adventure. This is a highly sensual and tremendous love story about what a man is willing to risk and give to the women he loves most. Midnight will remain in your mind and beat in your heart for a lifetime.

Her "raw and true voice" (Publishers Weekly) will both soothe and arouse you. In a beautifully written and masterfully woven story, Sister Souljah has given us Midnight, and solidified her presence as the mother of all contemporary urban literature.

    The coldest winter was the first novel that I had ever read in my life. I couldn't put the book down. Now that I have free time I have decided to read midnight and might I add, it is a great read. Some times I have to force myself to stop reading because it's so interesting.
  • Boring !!!!

    Midnight is fascinating and one of the greatest male characters of all time. A young man cut from a different cloth and out most leagues. A classic from Souljah!
  • Kept me in anticipation

    So I'm still confused as to how Midnight became an arrogant Muslim ninja. This book had no clear plot and was poorly written. Aside from the belief system everything else was unbelievable. I literally spent a day and a half reading about a fourteen year old wanting to play house in his mothers house with a girl two years older that couldn't speak english. Not only does the story line stray from who you would have thought Midnight was from "The Coldest Winer Ever", you get no clear explanation on how he came to even have the slight role in that book. From a character so judgmental of others and what he deems wrong, how does he become a drug dealer? Whatever happens to his family since Santiaga says he has no family? Then in the part two he's a super ninja traveling to Japan ? I mean really come on now. This book was just bad! If you can read a book with no clear story line with out irritation, or read about underage sex between middle schoolers pretty much without feeling weird, and or even read about how inferior everyone is to Africans and Muslims this is the book for you.
