Your description reminds me of Jack Vance's Planet of Adventure. Could it be the novel you're referring to?

From the Planet-of-Adventure Wikipedia entry:

In the novels, Tschai is a planet [...], 212 light-years from Earth. It is populated by three alien, mutually hostile species; the displaced, native Pnume; and various human races, some of whom live as slaves or clients of the aliens.

(my emphasis)

  • Doubt it's this, but any opportunity to mention the much-beloved Servants of the Wankh is always welcome. – user8719 Aug 16 '14 at 17:00
