Handsome, young, Muslim, and married to two women living in one house along with his mother, Umma, and sister, Naja: can Midnight manage? He is surrounded by Americans who don't share or understand his faith or culture, and adults who are offended by his maturity, intelligence, or his natural ability to make his hard work turn into real money. He is calm, confident, and cool, Ninja-trained and powerful, but one moment of rage throws this Brooklyn youth into a dark world of dirty police, gangs, guns, drugs, prisons, and prisoners. Everything he ever believed, every dollar he ever earned, and all of the women he ever loved—including his mother—are at risk.
Will his manhood be taken, broken, or altered? Can he maintain his faith among the heathens? Outnumbered, overruled, and deeply envied—how can he possibly survive? Will the streets convert him? What can he keep? What must he lose?
In this heart-pounding adventure, thriller, and intense narrative, New York Times bestselling author Sister Souljah has penned her most passionate and engrossing novel to date. Raw and uncompromising, her storytelling highlights and ignites the ongoing struggle of young men worldwide, to more than survive, but to live strong, to earn, to have the right to love and protect their families, to receive justice, and to be free.
A Moment of Silence is the last in the series of Midnight. This book picks up with Midnight bringing his half Japanese and half black teen age bride home to America. Midnight already has one wife and has to juggle between the two. Just went you start to care about their family, the story changes from a love story to a story about prison life.
Alternating between flashbacks and the present, As the reader, I was left confused as times to what time period the story was in. The story is very slow to unfold despite Midnight being such an intriguing character. Frankly the story became boring and tedious to finish. It no longer has the spark that captured my attention at the beginning of this series.
