His 16th birthday had been the most horrible day of Jon Hansen's life, but things were about to get worse.
The ring - His father vanished when he went to retrieve the ring for Jon's birthday. When Jon puts the ring on, he notices that it is more than a simple ring!
The cuff - He found in his father's things after his father vanished.
The ring/cuff combo - transports Jon into an unfamiliar world. Jon and his younger sister, Sela, didn't know that all the fantasy stories their father told them about Yden were in fact true.
First trip to Yden... Jon is mistaken for a vagrant, chased by the cygards, and barely escapes. How he can he rescue his father when he can barely rescue himself?
Now that his father is gone, money is tight. So Jon transfers from Pacific Prep to the public school... Pacific High. While shopping for clothes for school he meets a pretty girl, Brett and finds out she goes to his new school. He also makes a new friend at his new school, Casey Scott. Things would be looking up if his arch-enemy, Fred, hadn't also transferred to public school.
Second trip to Yden... Jon finds himself in the dungeon with a woman warrior, Kira Szul, and is able to free them both using his magical powers.
While serving Detention together, Fred and Jon save an old man and a young woman from a burning car. Jon immediately recognizes Kira Szul and Dorsit from Yden. And his life has just become more complicated...
When Jon returns to Yden the third time he has an entire posse with him... Brett has been kidnapped by Efysian, the evil wizard who is holding Jon's dad captive, and taken to Yden. Jon returns with Casey, Kira, and Fred to rescue her. Dragons, evil wizards, a girlfriend AND a father that need saving...

"The Last Great Wizard of Yden" is an adventure that is equally fun for Young Adults and Adults! Jon Hansen's adventures on Yrth and in Yden are exciting, suspenseful and full of action. His relationships with his friends, family and the Wizard community of Yden are whole-heartedly entertaining. A wonderful, fast-paced novel involving magical powers, fantasy worlds and even a bit of romance! Highly recommended for readers of any age who enjoy magical moments!

A thoroughly enchanting and enjoyable story for both YA and Adults alike! I love how the author makes the world of Yden come to life with her detailed descriptions of all its many creatures and peoples. If you are a fan of wizards and sorcery then this is the book for you! I highly recommend The Last Geat Wizard of Yden.
