This question already has an answer here:
I read a book 10+ years ago where the world was ruled by various factions, each one had a special ability of some sort.
The main characters faction had regenerative ability. Another faction had the ability to speed up or slow down time.
I am not sure of the plot, but I know at one point he is injured so badly he starts growing a clone which he attempts to kill, but comes back later in the story.
