'The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms' by N K Jemisin
The first book in the 'The Inheritance' trilogy. Don't get fooled by the title, there's hardly any kingdoms involved at all. Mostly focused on the intrigues around the übercourt that rules all the kingdoms. Was not quite what I expected and I was a bit disappointed. I hope the next two books gets better.
