    If you mean a villain's POV, sure. You're not going to get a book solely from an antagonist's POV because the main character is automatically the protagonist, even if he's the bad guy and people are rooting against him. The antagonist is simply the one keeping the main character from achieving his/her goals.

    Kristin Cashore's Fire (the sequel to Graceling) is basically told from the antagonist's POV as in the MC was the antagonist in the first book and Fire is told from his POV and he is quite villainous (IMO).

    Scott Westerfeld's PRETTIES/UGLIES series has segments from multiple POVs, including villain POVs, in the later books.
