The Assassin and the Underworld (Throne of Glass #0.3) by Sarah J Maas

When the King of the Assassins gives Celaena Sardothien a special assignment that will help fight slavery in the kingdom, she jumps at the chance to strike a blow against an evil practice. The misson is a dark and deadly affair which takes Celaena from the rooftops of the city to the bottom of the sewer—and she doesn’t like what she finds there.
----------
First line:
The cavernous entrance hall of the Assassin's Keep was silent as Celeana Sardothien stalked across the marble floor, a letter clutched between her fingers.

4 stars out of 5

 Celaena has had a hard life. Orphaned at age eight. Trained to be an assassin and pitted against those her age. Betrayed by Ansel. Beat by Arobynn. It's nice to see her begin to let her walls down with Sam. I'm looking forward to more development of their relationship. Sam is awesome. Arobynn is a possessive, controlling creep. Obsessing over a girl who's half your age? That's really creepy. He does make the perfect villian, though. In this book, we we're getting a peek at Celaena's softer side rather than her hard exterior.
