* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' does this frequently, with most of its LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters getting scenes from their point of view, including Harry Dresden's signature FirstPersonSmartass. Early on, this was something of a problem since it tended to shift perspective between paragraphs with little or no warning. Later, scene breaks were added and have been retroactively added to some of the earlier chapters.

* ''Literature/LorienLegacies'' does this regularly. From the second book (titled ''[[SequelNumberSnarlThe Rise Of Six]]'') the writer has been kind to show the switching narrator (between Marina and John) with different type fonts, and in the third book it properly announces which P.O.V it is, but from then the P.O.V still switches without it being shown.

* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8340339/1/The-Quiet-Fox The Quiet Fox]]'' (a Naruto story) combines this with flashbacks since almost every other chapter is narrated by a different person. Oddly, Naruto himself doesn't get to narrate a chapter despite being the main character.

* Terry Goodkind does this a lot in SwordOfTruth, especially noteworthy though is in the first book where the POV has been on the male main character most of the book (except one small part when he is unconscious) until around half of the book where the POV changes to the female main character. This is done to put more info on her personality and her secret and also to show that she also feels an attraction to him.
