Sister Souljah’s runaway bestseller The Coldest Winter Ever introduced readers to Midnight, a brave, smart, humble and dangerously attractive young lieutenant to underworld businessman Santiaga. Now, she brings readers into the heart and mind of this silent, fearless, loyal man as he maneuvers against the odds and defends his way of life in this powerful story about love and loyalty, strength and survival.
Raised in a wealthy, powerful African Islamic family, Midnight is comfortable, confident and protected. However, his father never lied to him about the difference between the extreme love that he received at home and the dangerous challenges of the world. When Midnight’s father’s empire is attacked, he sends Midnight to live with his mother in the States. On the streets of Brooklyn, New York, young Midnight uses his African intelligence and Muslim mindset to protect his loved ones and reclaim his wealth and way of life.
Sister Souljah will sweep you from continent to continent and culture to culture with her “raw and true voice” (Publishers' Weekly) that both soothes and arouses, and Midnight will remain in your mind and beat in your heart for a lifetime.

The book was very well written but there where several sub topics which seem to be undeveloped and after forcing myself to keep reading was totally disappointed in the book. Not even sure I care to see what happens next...
This book was different than The Coldest Winter Ever, but it was still a great read. It goes deep back into the day's of midnight growing up and falling in love.
I toally respect Sister Soulja she took her time to really think about how she wanted this story to go. We meet Midnight in her first book "coldest winter"(he was an adult). To better understand the man she started from when his was younger in this book brilliant!!!! the book was thought provoking made you think a feel. I love it suggest you give a read whether you borrow from a friend, the library,or buy it just read it.
I did not like this book at all. It was soooo different from the coldest winter ever. It took forever to finish it. Don't know if I want to read anymore books by her.
enjoyed this book....i really wish that the girl he should of fell in love with was a sister, then i would of gave it thumbs up
