Synopsis from Goodreads

In a land where three suns almost never set, a fledgling killer joins a school of assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers who destroyed her family.

Daughter of an executed traitor, Mia Corvere is barely able to escape her father's failed rebellion with her life. Alone and friendless, she wanders a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and its thugs. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the hearth of a retired killer, and a future she never imagined.

Now, Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic—the Red Church. Treachery and trials await her with the Church’s halls, and to fail is to die. But if she survives to initiation, Mia will be inducted among the chosen of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and one step closer to the only thing she desires.

Why I am Waiting

Daughter of an executed traitor - this is one of those situations that fascinated often the main focus of a story is the traitor I'd love to read about the effects it has on the traitors family. Then of course we have a school of assassins which sound a bit like Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers. Also if you go onto the Goodreads page and look at the authors review you can see a bit more about this book and there is also a excerpt over at the USA Today which I am just off to read.
