Consider placing the second book of a SF/F trilogy into the point of view of a secondary character from the first book. Good? Bad?
This seems like a workable idea to me, interesting, expand the world, fresh new ideas, insights into other characters. It allows the time to be run out further, the 'trilogy' could take ten or twenty years to resolve and the protagonist of any particular book could be any age.
But maybe it's a really, really bad idea.
Is this sort of POV shift workable in trilogies? Are there significant disadvantages to changing POV in a second and third book? Perhaps I should conceptualize the story as a series rather than a trilogy to start with.
Thanks in advance if you have thoughts about this.
