I've got a story I want to tell but I'm struggling with the best way to frame it. It's contemporary fantasy - a group of misfit monster hunters is drawn together to take on a big bad.

Can anyone recommend contemporary fantasy stories with multiple (more than two) POVs, or ones written in omni? It may be how I need to go, but I want to soak up some technique, first.

Thanks for any suggestions!

I really liked Paul Cornell's book London Falling, and I think it fits your requirements. He has a sequel to that novel as well, now.

If you're open to YA, there's Maggie Stiefvater's Raven Cycle.

Oooh, I've already read (and enjoyed) two of the three recs - I just wasn't paying attention to POV back then! So I can re-read them, and pick up a copy of London Falling - thanks, guys!

(I guess I could just wait for the next book in the Raven Cycle to come out and study it, but it's taking too long.)

I second The Raven Boys and the rest of the Raven Cycle (though I've only read the first two). I also would say The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black (also YA).
