I really enjoy shapeshifters and J.M.'s writing so I had a feeling I was going to like ths story. And yeah, I liked this story. A lot! It is set during the American Civil War and involves two men from opposite sides of the country that bond over a certain trait that they share. They are both bobcat shapeshifters and every month under the full moon they shift at night into their furry counterparts. I know!!! I mean, when was the last time you read a story like that?!? Yeah, never is the correct r ...more

Caleb is a confederate soldier of a renegade army. He is also a werecat and has a serious problem: during the full moon he changes automatically and can't prevent that. So happens also this time but during the first night he finds another werecat, Brance. Brance is wonded and rough, not at all friendly. But he is the first werecat Caleb has ever met, and Caleb is eager of companionship. And so he insinuates himself on Brance's life.

But the morning after he discovers that Brance is a union soldie

Between States Book 1 – Under a Confederate Moon by JM Snyder is a novelette at 17, 197 words published by JMS Books. Told from the third-person viewpoint of Caleb, this story is a fascinating blend of historical and paranormal subgenres. Our heroes are three-dimensional, nineteenth century men with Caleb coming across as high-energy and a bit needy and Brance gruff, well educated, and honorable. Though they make an odd couple, and sometimes they grow realistically exasperated with each other, t ...more
Set during the Civil War, Under a Confederate Moon follows a burgeoning love affair between two soldiers that find themselves on opposing sides of the battle. The bond the two men share as were-cats provides a stimulating twist to the age old tale of longing to find that other person who can fully understand who you are...

For the entire review please go to the Best Paranormal & Urban Fantasy Review site on the web, Bitten By Books for the review of Under a Confederate Moon in it's entirety.
This was a pretty good novella, however I believe the idea of werecats making love is more exciting than reading it. As two men, they are HOT! I was more involved with the story of Caleb and Brance falling in love but being on opposite sides of the civil war. Brance is the only person Caleb has met who can accept him as a man and as a beast. However, being on opposing sides of the war isn’t the only obstacle Caleb and Brance will have to overcome.
J.M. Snyder's Under a Confederate Moon is a wonderful story about a love that can supercede any obstacle ~ even when they're fighting on different sides of a war.

Nice story, but don't mind me, I wasn't very fond of the sex in animal form.Hence the rating.
