More About the Author

J. Dane Tyler started writing fiction in the early 1980s, but only got serious about learning the craft and the art in 2007. He sought to emulate his heroes like Stephen King and Amy Tan, and enjoys literary horror and scary old guys in battered hats and overalls living in shanties in moss-draped swamps. Or at least stories about them.

When he's not reading and writing, he's working on non-fiction computer books under an assumed name, which is not Clark Kent due to copyright issues, and loves to draw and watch cartoons. He believes computer animated motion pictures are voodoo and they rank among his favorite films. He also wants to learn to fight like Jason Bourne someday, but would settle for a flat tummy at the moment.

Dane lives in Northern Illinois with his wife Vanessa and their two children.

The story revolves around a hardened cowboy who works on the trail as a "hunter," as in one who hunts dragons. He's been searching for a specific dragon for a long time. As the story begins, he finally hears tell of the dragon he's been after and he reluctantly joins forced with a stubborn old farmer who's hell-bent on killing the same beast.

It's hard to really nail down a genre for this one - it's clearly a western at it's core but it's got plenty of fantasy, sci-fi, and steampunk in there as well. It may sound like a weird mash up, but trust me, it works great. I'm calling it cowpunk.

The villain was interesting and felt like a realistically insane bad guy.

So despite the fast that I've never really gotten into westerns, I very much enjoyed reading this one.

I seldom read fantasy, but the title and description grabbed me. From the beginning this book was all about action, adventure and revenge. Who doesn't like those things? This is a fast paced read and just when you think you have it all figured out, things change. The author does a great job of creating a bad guy, then creating a monster. Nicely written with great imagination.

First, a little disclaimer: I'm a friend of the author's but I downloaded a copy from Amazon (it was free at the time) to support him and give an honest review.

Scales of Justice is set in a western-style, dusty and dry place. I'm not sure if it's Earth or elsewhere, but the technology is both advanced and not at the same time. You have horseless carriages, pulsar guns, and regular ol' guns straight from the Old West. While the setting isn't unique, the monsters sure are -- and the characters are fun.

Wyrm Hunter Connor is searching for a particular "potbelly" and happens upon a farmer named Jed, also looking for the same creature. From there, things take a strange turn. I honestly didn't expect the ending and the twists were unique. The bad guy was interesting and substantial, and the monsters were just fun. Honestly, I recommend buying this simply for the plot. It's very well-written, with great formatting (though I would've liked a table of contents but that's just me), and a great novel all around. 4/5 stars.
