So as of right now, I'm toying with the idea of having either three or six POVs. The three I need to have for each separate plot thread; a king, rogue, and ranger would all be able to move the plot nicely along and have plenty of development too. The problem? They're all related. They all experienced the same tragic finale in the last book. They're all still grappling with the same issue. And even though the way each of them deals with it can be different, I don't want it to feel that all three are carbon copies of each other. Especially at the start of the book. So I figured that there were three other supporting characters who would each play a role in one of the base three's plot threads. A goddess for the ranger, the queen for the king, and a princess for the rogue. These characters would be able to provide a different perspective and more info for each of my three plot threads, and when I interweave the plot threads, they all actually end up being couples. The extra trio also have really different and fresh perspectives unlike the somewhat similar backgrounds for the base trio. So in the end, I'm wondering if six POVs would be too many and too confusing? Would they hinder the plot's progression when I switch POVs? I've seen examples of multiple POVs being done well but I am unsure of whether six would work. Following the general flow of the plot, the goddess and ranger are together from the beginning, as well as the king and queen, but the rogue and the princess are not, and do not meet up for half the story. Does this make them wild cards? Would the switches to them be too jarring or refreshing? I'd like to know what you think, and I can clarify things if any of it is unclear.
