Zach awakens in a dark cellar chained at the leg to a stranger, who is bleeding from several injuries.  Zach soon discovers that Mal has been bitten and is undergoing some extreme changes. Nevertheless, Zach and Mal manage to find love, in the midst of chaos. 

Written in the style of a one scene play, Beneath the Neon Moon is dramatic.  I was given the same impression as if I had walk into the middle of a movie. Missing all the key details of plot building, the story starts in the cellar and ends in limbo.  Character background is expressed in snippets of each man’s childhood memory with not enough details to add any dimension to the characters.  The suspense scenario is interesting. However, I felt I was cheated out of a complete story.
