Secrets are revealed, sides are chosen, and bodies are dropped - it's on!
After being thought dead, Animal resurfaces on the streets of New York to keep true to his promise and make it rain blood over Harlem. All those who had wronged him would feel his wrath, including Shai Clark, boss of the New York underworld. But touching a man like Shai Clark proves easier said than done. Using Animal's soul mate, Gucci, as bait, Shai sets a trap for the young killer.
Once again Animal finds himself captured, but this time there will be no trial. He is sentenced to die at the hands of Shai's executioner, a man known only as Priest. The assassin is ordered to kill Animal, but instead of death he gives him the truth of his shadowed past and how their destinies are intertwined. The man ordered to take Animal from the world is also the man who brought him into it.
Animal finds himself torn between his hatred for the father who had abandoned him and the man who had taken everything from him. An uneasy truce is formed between father and son to take down a common enemy and finally grant Animal his freedom from the blood debt he's carried for so many years. But when the ghosts of Animal's past catch up with him, he learns that nothing is what it seems, and everything is subject to corruption - even his love for Gucci.

I loved every section of this book. This book held my attention from the beginning to the epilogue! The Animal series is definitely becoming my favorite.
Cary Hite has the perfect tone for K'wans storytelling
I would take Ashanti and King out to dinner to see if they would open up about their way of thinking. Both are so smart (although ruthless). It would be Animal but I feel as though I know why he thinks the way that he does and handles life the way that he does.
I love K'wan.... Keep it coming!
It you don't like...change it!
Yes, listening to this story too me was like watching the a good movie. All I need was popcorn & a soda. It was full of action, drama, scandal….loved it!
If you have been sleeping on K'wan, Animal series like I was at first….wake up! This series has it all.
In love with love...
You find it unbelievable that a killer can be painted as the good guy. But Kwan made it so. I was on the edge of my seat most of this book. The narrator is great. DONT CHANGE the story teller please.
You can take Animal out the hood but not the hood out of Animal !!!!!
Zo Pound is my favorite character he is low key but will get hood when he needs too!!!!
Absolutely! I love the interaction between all the characters and how everything and everyone came together.
How he found out the story behind Priest and why he spared his life and Gucci's.
Cary Hite is one of my favorite narrators! He tells the story so you can see it. Love, love, love love it!!!!!
Yes! Some it definitely made me laugh.
Cannot WAIT til ANIMAL III is available. Please hurry!!!!!
I enjoy all K'wan books and was lookin forward to this one. It was very dry & redundant. Alittle bit of action here and there. But I was disappointed.
Love Carey Hite as the narrator
I love to listen good books. African American urban literature is my favorite. I hope to see them in more BoGo and discount sales.
ANIMAL confronting the father he thought was dead.
I freaking love Cary Hite. I look for books he narrates.
Animal 2: The Reckoning
Please get more African American urban literature.
Yes! The Hoodrat (Animal) series has me captavated!
The fact that Animal and his crew came out on top...again!
I enjoy all of Cary performances
This is an excellent addition to the series. The surprise cameos were surperb and welcomed. An MUST READ if you like the Hoodrat (Animal) series. Well worth the credit/money
Animal II is grimey good! Shoot'em up gangsters, crooked cops, and hold'em down divas, this book delivers. I was completely taken by Animal this time. He is surly hood but in this book I understood his street struggles. His father Priest is Rudy Ray Moore bad and comes in to save Animal by helping him take on his thuggish street enemies. Animal isn't happy to see Priest but allows himself to be mentored by his father. Priest is a cold blooded mercenary and he holds fast to others paying their debts with their blood. Growing up without his father Animal finds that he has more in common than he cared to admit but also finds some disturbing demons lurking under Priest's collar. This book digs deep into both Animal and Priest's history. I wasn't disappointed to find out where they came from and where they were going. I smell an Animal III after listening to this book and as always Cary Hite's performance is outstandly dramatic! He paints a vividly clear picture that will leave you in awe!
At the top!!!!
Yes, it did. I really like how the writer connects the two books together; leaving you wanting you to hear the rest of the plot.
I like all of the characters, but I really like Animal of course and Gucci.
I think the Priest is the most memorable in this book. Without him, Animal wouldn't have had a chance!!!
I'm hooked! I can't wait until the next book is released. This book was so good, I finished it in two days......
