Ashus' conviction was absolute. Though she had been abducted by a pack of demons and treated like a slave, the gods would save her from her dismal fate. They had to. This unwavering faith was the only thing that kept the frail goddess going. How long had it been since her alluring beauty had brought this horrific fate upon her? It was only when she had forgotten what the Heavens looked like that the sickening realization dawned upon her: Salvation would never come.

Forlorn hope is a persistent or desperate hope that is unlikely to be fulfilled. Originated in mid 16th century from Dutch "verloren hoop" ("lost troop"), from verloren (past participle of verliezen "lose") and hoop "company". The phrase originally denoted a band of soldiers picked to begin an attack, many of whom would not survive. The current sense (mid 17th century), derives from a misunderstanding of the etymology.
