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.

Wild idea; crazy ride! What if a friendly alien race were to come to Earth with the intent to be helpful and trade knowledge and technology how could it avoid the worse of human nature and suspicion? One way would be quietly hiding in plain sight and evaluating passersby who had a great need of some type with which the aliens could help; for example, victims of dread diseases and poor social conditions. What if those the aliens helped no longer fit into their niche in human society because of unique abilities set them apart from other humans around them? What if they had to remain in hiding until there were enough of them to establish an alien embassy so they could negotiate as equals with the governments of Earth? And so it is with Hair Power that odd alien creatures resembling hair balls begin to locate people with great needs, brain cancer, AIDS, and similar issues so that they can restore their health and vitality while creating human/alien hybrids in order to establish a diplomatic presence on Earth. Hair Power follows characters that become hybrids through the hardships of separating themselves from human society in order to fulfill the alien agenda. The characters are sufficiently well developed to serve the story and have interesting backgrounds before their alien involvement. Hair Power is a science fiction ‘what if’ scenario that should appeal to any lover of science Fiction (especially followers of Piers Anthony) and to anyone else who simply wants a good quick offbeat read.
