Review by: Elizabeth Miller on March 04, 2012 :
Nice tight writing and some very decent actions sequences keep this novel moving right along. Characters weren't deep so you don't really connect too closely with them but this by no means make this anything but an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon in the sun.

I wrote a Review in Librarything.com.This book started from the first page and kept on going to the very end with action. Chapter One begins with introducing you to the three main characters who attrack danger. The three main characters each have their own reasons for wanting to get to Avadar. The chapters had their own suspense and dramas going on in them and sometimes they did overlap. However this kept you reading so you could find out what happened next. I enjoyed this book and would take a chance and read another novel by Steven Drennor. I wanted to read and finish this book to see how it ended even though I am not an avid book reader.

In Three for Avadar its no surprise that three people meet up on the trail for Avadar. First Bengar is a warrior and hears sounds of fighting he heads over to where the fighting is. He sees Two soldiers on horse's fighting a group of seven thieves and trying to get to the lady they are protecting. Bangar steps in and helps defeat the thieves and is timing was great because the one soldier just died and by the time all the thieves are dead the last soldier died and Ariadne faints.
Ariadne tells him her father is a merchant and will reward him for helping to get to avadar safely. Bengar is planning to go thier to join the army because who they are going to war with killed his brother and his family and he wants revenge.
They come to a tavern and hope to spend the night but most of the people in their want thier money and Ariadne. Bengar ends up fighting most of the tavern but a person in cloak helps him to defeat them.
Mahri is a sorceress who is on trail of a powerful object called the heart of Omhri that gives a lot of power to a sorcer. King of Omhri to protect it sent it away before it could be stolen before he died.
So the three travel and when they to Avadar they realize who Ariadne is and they are each allowed to do what they want.
It goes from action to action and keeps your focus on the story. It has love, vengence, hero's and villians. Good over evil.
You care for Bengar,Ariadne and Mahri and want them to suceed in their goals.
I was given this ebook in exchange for honest review.

Review by: ggprof on Aug. 03, 2011 :
I received this ebook as part of a free giveaway program. While I tend to enjoy epic or high fantasy, I found the description and character interaction wooden and that it detracted from the outline of a good story idea.

The main characters and story had an interesting premise, but they were not fleshed out enough to make draw me in. The author’s description of the various fight scenes was good and struck a nice balance between going into enough detail to interest a reader but not so much as to lose a more casual reader.

Three for Avadar was a great read and fast paced story. Overall the author did a great job but I feel he could've developed the characters more.

Review by: Raina Zheng on July 24, 2011 :
I’m sorry to say that I didn’t like this book. Ariadne seemed flighty and shallow, and the whole love story between Bengar and Mahri seemed implausible. The characters were very flat and one-dimensional. I got bored near the end of the book and found that I didn’t really care what happened to the characters. I did enjoy the final confrontation between Tolbhri and Mahri, though, and the descriptions are vivid.

i enjoyed this book alot. it was well written and had great humor interwoven thruout the book. the main characters an eclectic bunch and all have great personalities that i had no trouble identifing with. the plot was also very good as it was not one of those that you had figured out 5 minutes into the book but it kept me guessing right up to the last pages. i would highly recommend this book to anyone that likes a fantasy genre or even someone looking for something different from their everday reads. they won't be disappointed.

Three for Avadar by Steven R. Drennon is a fast-paced, action-packed adventure about three people who encounter each other while traveling to Avadar. The main characters are a soldier for hire, Bengar, and two women, Ariadne and Mahri who meet under dire circumstances during their travels. Bengar first meets Ariadne while she and her escorts are beset by a group of bandits. With Bengar’s help they manage to overcome the bandits. Then Bengar and Ariadne meet up with Mahri during another attack that they manage to overcome with Mahri’s help.
Bengar is traveling to Avadar to take part in the upcoming war with the Galdaen’s. Ariadne is from Avadar and returning home. Mahri is traveling to Avadar in search of an artifact. Mahri is a sorceress and the impending war is backed by an evil wizard who is also searching for this artifact and Mahri must find it before he does or all is lost.
The story is packed full of fighting and battle scenes. The scenes are very descriptive and detailed. My attention was grabbed from the very beginning and I found it hard to put down. I enjoyed this story very much. I feel it would have been better if written in the first person format but despite this it was a very good read and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good story to read.

Review by: Scooby2 on July 17, 2011 :
I loved reading this story. It has a blend of romance, heroism, sorcery and more all in one. I was grabbed by the first of this story to the end. It is well written and I thought it flowed nicely. This was a great fantasy tale of three weary travelers going to the same destination, Avadar. I would recommend this story to others to read.

Review by: Victoria on July 12, 2011 :
The idea was apparent, but there were too many flaws to make this a good story. The author makes the mistake of telling instead of describing the events to the reader leaving the characters shallow and one dimensional. I would have been more interested if there was a more in-depth attention to the progression of this story.

STEVEN R. DRENNON'S "THREE FOR AVADAR" (REVIEW)

This story was a wonderful fantasy tale about three unfortunate travelers that find their way into each other's company all bound for the land of Avadar. Along the way their tales are highlighted and some interesting things happen. Steven R. Drennon reminds me heavily of some of my most favorite fantasy authors such as R.A. Salvatore. I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys fantasy stories with tons of action and magic.
