Not all stories about succubi and incubi use what can be described as the expected mythos. Overall, that allows for quite a lot of interesting storytelling and the construction of a story universe in which the unexpected can be.
Perhaps the most amazing thing is when a new mythos is formed which brings something new to succubi and incubi, giving the myths something to expand upon.

The work tells of:
Molly grew up in a small town in Montana, and she knows she’s different. Stange things have been happening for years, and there’s no way out of her current predicament with her ‘parents’. She’s tried. Four insane men try to take her from her home, and she finds out she isn’t human at all. She’s the heir to Hell, and her twin has finally found her. Fated mates. Magic. Wars. Action. Fights. Will she get past her trauma? Can she survive this new life?
Demons. Witches. Warlocks. Vampires. Shifters. Angels. Oh, my.
Molly’s life hasn’t been wonderful by any means. Being attacked isn’t good, and finding out that she isn’t human isn’t much better. Still, the discovery that she has a brother is one positive thing isn’t it? Molly hopes so, things can’t get much worse can they?
The work drifts between creating the universe the story is set in and the trials that Molly faces in finding herself and what it all means to her. It’s very complex at times, many myths and legends are touched upon in the storytelling. What’s interesting about that is the myths aren’t exactly as one might expect them to be. There’s a lot of tangents the work takes and I thought they were very imaginative.
Molly, the succubus of the work and Milo, her incubus brother, don’t act like what the traditional myths tell of them and that’s quite refreshing. Both are thoughtful, trying to come to terms with their past and possible futures. Along the way there are ssme terrible moments, but there are also some moments of hope and joy that fit them both well.
There is some erotica in the work, but it doesn’t drive the story overall. What does matter is the piecing together of what Molly has been through and how she and Milo move to their futures. The ending fits them well, it dives hope and considering all they have been through, that’s a fitting place for the story to be.
Four out of five pitchforks.
The mythos around Molly and Milo is inspired, detailed and gives something to think about. It’s a very enveloping read and one should enjoy every page for the wonder the author creates. Story matters and here the story really means everything.
