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.

Amazing insight into Sudanese culture and into the history of Midnight's mysterious character. Beautiful book loved it almost more than the Santiaga's story just for the cultural beauty that is captured so well.

The strength of Midnight, Mayonaka, captured me wholly and completely. I must admit that it put things in perspective for me. The amount of passion and dedication he possesses shows me that this is how a man is supposed to love and cherish his closest. His heath was stronger than the diamonds he was given. He remained a specimen of a solid man. I want a true love like that; one that knows no bounds, no limits, refuses to take 'no' for an answer. In fact, I demand it. No man will be Midnight, but MY man will be a prototype. Sayonara.
