Respawn by Hiroshi Sakurazaka
This was a terrific read.
Written by the guy who wrote the novel that became the movie Edge of Tomorrow.
Here Sakurazaka takes the same premise; becoming reborn the instant you die but puts the mind of the narrator in the body of the person who kills his previous self.
It was a mind-twisting notion as the narrator continues to inhabit new bodies he also inherits their lives.
I simply loved the story, however I did not understand the ending. Since it was such a fun ride to the last sentence I really did not care if the ending did not live up to the rest.
It was wonderfully imaginative.
