Review: I was not planing on writing a reviewing on this book, but since I just finished it I guess I should since it is fresh in my mind. OK, so I read the first book Midnight and this one is the squeal to the first one. All I have to say is if you like long drawn out books this is the book for you. I had to put it down a few times because I got bored with it. No kidding. But this book was good as far as learning different cultures our than the american culture. Japanese, Korean, and Sudanese cultures were the highlight of this book. Honestly…the first one was better. It had more excitement. Would I recommend this book? Yes I would to other people whom are into great details and long books.
Sister Souljah, the New York Times bestselling author of The Coldest Winter Ever and Midnight, delivers her most compelling and enlightening story yet. With Midnight and The Meaning of Love, Souljah brings to her millions of fans an adventure about young, deep love, the ways in which people across the world express their love, and the lengths that they will go to have it.
Powerful and sensual, Midnight is an intelligent, fierce fighter and Ninjutsu-trained ninja warrior. He attracts attention wherever he goes but remains unmoved by it and focuses on protecting his mother and sister and regaining his family’s fortunes. When Midnight, a devout Muslim, takes sixteen-year-old Akemi from Japan as his wife, they look forward to building a life together, but their tumultuous teenage marriage is interrupted when Akemi is kidnapped and taken back to Japan by her own father, even though the marriage was consummated and well underway.
“There’s not one drop of inferiority in my blood,” Midnight says as he first secures his mother, Umma, and sister, Naja, before setting off on a global journey to reclaim his wife. Midnight must travel across three countries and numerous cultures in his attempt to defeat his opponent. Along this magnificent journey he meets people who change him forever, even as he changes them. He encounters temptations he never would have imagined and takes risks that many a lesser man would say no to, all for the women he loves and is sworn to protect.
