Lady Boyle, who was kidnapped by Lord Brisby, does everything she can to get away. She even resorts to using the same antics her, her sisters, party guests and Thalia Timsh conducted out of fun: performing a seance (or at least what she assumed was a seance last time). Delilah answers her, examines the determined Boyle and asks if she’d like to have the power to break free. Lady Boyle agrees and there never has been a fiercer witch in Delilah’s coven like her. She weaves thorns into her hair and makes bone charms with Brisby’s bones. They rattle like terrified little birds in her hands and that always draws a smile on her face.
