"...If you are looking for something to help you fill the void where Hunger Games left you, try this one!" By Katelyn Hensel for Readers' Favorite**** 4.5/5 ****
"Want, by Magus Tor, is a Young Adult dystopian page turner... The author's ability to create a complex and believable world in a short amount of time is admirable. Moreover, this is the first book in the Numbered Series, leaving the author plenty of time to develop the characters. He lays a solid foundation for the series that is intriguing and thought-provoking. While the opening pages are a bit slow, the final pages are action-packed. The cliffhanger ending will make many readers want more." By SelfPublishingReview.com
*****5/5***** "...Want: Trust no one, no one trusts is a beautiful book inside and out. The storyline spans only three days, but it is fascinating and kept me intrigued from start to finish. Author Magus Tor fills those days with excitement, fear, love, and a deep desire to overcome the challenges the societies on both the Earth and the Moon are facing. With a strong science fiction theme it is written in a way that makes it seem quite possible that it could actually happen. I highly recommend Magus Tor's Want and can hardly wait to pick up the second book in the series and read it." Originally reviewed by Liz Cooper of AuthorsTalkAboutIt.com
From the Author
Numbered series came as a surprise for me too. I was thinking about the title of Dream Killing book 2 and wondered if I should play with the word two (into tool). After much debate, I ended up naming it Dream Killing 2. But I really like the idea about using Tool for Two and continue to play with the other numbers. One ended up being Want, Two became Tool, Three was changed to Tree, Four was converted to Fall and Five was made into Fine. (I ended up stopping at Fall instead of Fine)
Since it was about numbers, I decided to call it the series Number Games but changed my mind as it was too similar to Hunger Games. I changed it to Numbered instead.
During that period, I was intrigued by the numbers of dystopian stories that were shown in the cinema (Hunger Games, Divergent and Running Maze) and thus decided to try my hands on Dystopian.
