Graceling by Kristin Cashore

Graceling is about a girl named Katsa who finds that she has been born with a special Grace - killing. In the land where Katsa lives, those who are Graced are feared and sent to the king to use in his army. Katsa is no different. King Randa sends her, Oll, and Giddon out on missions to kill people in his kingdom. Throughout the book, she meets a Leinid named Prince Greening, or Po, who is also Graced. Katsa decides, with Po's help, that she will no longer listen to Randa. They leave his court together and face many challenges while trying to figure out who had kidnaped a Leinid grandfather. After facing King Leck, Po and Katsa are forced to be separated, even though there is a possibility Po could die.
