A follow-up to The Coldest Winter Ever and Midnight is set in Japan, where teen Midnight's efforts to rescue his wife trigger unexpected consequences that mark his journey into adulthood.

Simon and Schuster
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.

Amazing book. I could not put it down. I wanted to keep reading to learn what would happen next. Character development is stellar. I felt like I knew the characters in real life. I felt their pain and fell in love myself.

this book was a very well pieced together story. it was an adventure that i can only say was nothing less than brilliant.Sister Souljah had me so enamored with this sequel that i found out where the first book was and am halfway through it currently. i encourage all who like a mixture of young love, morals and values, and a strong portrayal of a young black man to pick this book up ASAP.

I never got far enough into this book to judge it. At the end of Midnight: A Gangster Love Story, I felt like I was on a train heading for whatever was next in Midnight's life, but Sister Souljah slows things down at the beginning of this book, and I couldn't make the transition especially after reading The Coldest Winter Ever. So help me if you read this book. Should I try again?

OMG I am so in love with this book!!! I am in love with the bond that Akemi & Midnight share!! They are young, but very wise beyond their years. I am a little pissed that he had to share his love with Chaisa, I under that his belief is strong, yet my thinking is that if you are one with God then ones satisfaction from worldy things are lessened, hence one wiffe should be suffiient. Nonetheless, I love this book!!!!!

I smiled the way a man with troubles on his mind might smile to protect a child’s innocent view of the world.
