Terminal cancer patient, Quiti, walks into an abandoned building planning on taking her life.
Instead, she encounters a telepathic ball of hair that insists it is an alien seeking to facilitate diplomatic communication on Earth.
Quiti assumes it is all a hallucination conjured up by her brain tumor.
Because of this assumption, when she saves the alien’s life and it insists on doing Quiti a favor in return, she only asks for her hair back. She soon discovers, however, that the creature’s gift extends much further than her new locks that can change color with a thought. As her powers grow and her deadly illness goes into remission, Quiti quickly realizes that there are those that would want to use her for her abilities and is forced to leave behind everything that she knew.
Will this blessing curse her to a life on the run, or does the mysterious hairball have more in store for her?
Piers Anthony, critically acclaimed author of the New York Times bestselling Xanth series, brings together humor and adventure in this original story of loyalty, friendship, extraordinary powers, and hair.
Available on Amazon.
I chose to listen to this audiobook after receiving a free copy from Dreaming Big Publications. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. I’ve always had a lot of Piers Anthony books in my bookstore so when I had the chance to review one of his books, I thought I’d check it out.
Hair Power is a story of hope, friendship, and weird hair. I felt sorry for Quiti at first because she has terminal cancer but that all changes when the hairball she saves ends up saving her. She gradually becomes strong not only physically but intellectually and emotionally. She knows that it’s the hair’s doing and lets it continue to grow. The longer it grows, the more powerful she becomes.
This book was fun to read for the most part because it is so over the top. Quiti grows throughout the book and even when she is on the run she is self-sufficient and makes friends along the way. I was uncomfortable when she allowed her underage friend to do anything with her body but penetrate because that would still be considered wrong and probably illegal. I will listen to Hair Suite to find out what happens. Hopefully, it will be without the weird sex.
