Sonny Bear is a champion. . .but he needs the help of an angel.

Sonny Bear, the Tomahawk Kid, is on a fast downhill slide with the heavyweight championship at stake. He hardly knows who he is anymore, or why he should keep on fighting.

Then the first e-mail arrives.

Do not lose heart. I come on a Mission from the Creator to save you.

-- Warrior Angel

The Warrior Angel might be just what Sonny Bear needs -- but will Sonny be prepared to save him, too?
