Jemisin, N. K. -- The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms

Young princess from an outlying barbarian tribe is summoned to Court to be named heir. None of the cliches you're now imagining apply -- or rather, the story lets you hold onto each one just long enough to get oriented and then replaces it with something better. Great narrator; great collection of cranky and devious gods (or, as Brust would say, demons; or andaat, or... yeah, it's been a theme the past few years). Comes to a very definite end, although other books will follow in the same setting.
