I am looking for a SF book based in the far future.
All planets with life forms have formed a formation (like the European Union but universal)
A weapon-life-form has gone berserk and is killing humans at a certain base.
It flees away to a far away planet.
A group of 4 or 5 aliens (each from different races) are collected in a hunting team to destroy it.
- One of the party had many limbs
- One of the party was like a swarm of atoms
- One of the party was telepathic.
The name of the book may have been the name of the planet(?).
The weapon life form is created by humans, half mechanical and half biological I think. They can travel through space.
And member of the group was a human.
It was a thick book, like 300 pages or so, and if I remember right, a black front with a small image.
What is important maybe, is the fact that almost everything in the universe is discovered already, and a universal governement is having control. The planet where the lifeform is fleeing to, is living and is full of nature, trees and plants. No animals or aliens there. The planet is located at the borders of the known universe.At the end of the book the different spieces learn the power to transform in a collective lifeform where they become "one"
Earth is still there but people that live there, live underground because the air is not good enough to breath. Above the ground, earth is full of growcentra for stuff I can´t remember...
