Crown of Midnight (Sarah Maas, book #2 in Throne of Glass)
Annnd . . . what do I think so far? Celeana might be the king's champion, his personal assassin, but that doesn't mean she agrees with him or is even loyal to him. If he knew that though, she would be killed, so she takes his commands. When his next hit makes her confront her past, and possibly the only person who accepted her, she has to decide whether to obey or pay for her disloyalty with her own life and sacrifice her new friends.
