Victor is back with a brand-new quest to prove he
is worthy enough to marry his princess.
Prince Victor and Valerian want to get married. But Victor, in his
own unusual way, must pass three seemingly impossible tests of bravery,
endurance and cleverness. Victor must go back into the Dark Forest of
Nevermore to battle a fiery man-eating dragon, retrieve an armband from
the peak of a wizard's glass mountain, and uncover a tail feather from
the rarest bird in the world.
