City of Strife: (An Isandor Novel) (City of Spires Book 1) - Claudie Arseneault

I read and reviewed this a while back. Lots of POVs but it usually handled them well. Fantasy politics that kept me hooked, plus loads of LGBTQIA+ characters (all or nearly all letters have some rep, explicitly mentioned in the text - more smoothly done than my statement might make it seem, although it got to where I found myself waiting for the inevitable explicit mention of an identity for every named character).

 

I enjoyed it and think it's definitely worth $0.99, if fantasy politics and lots of characters with overlapping stories are your thing.
