Midnight Summary

Midnight - New York Times bestselling author Life After Death, the hip-hop generation's beloved 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.

    It’s hard to put into words how much I love this book. It is a page turner and if your looking for a book unlike any other , check it out. She is truly a gifted writer , not many people can write about the inner city with out depicting us as illiterate or less than lady like.

    I first read this book my freshman year in high school. I may have not fully understood what I was reading but now that I’m older and re-reading this book again has opened my eyes so much more to everything in my life. I have fell in love with this character and fell in love with the religion that’s Islam. This book is a serious life changer and will make you realize the things that are most important in life, how to love, and overcome distractions and fears that life brings you. The whole series is amazing and in my 19 years of reading so many books, this will always be my favorite book.

    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.
