The Sword Chronicles: Child of the Empire by Michaelbrent Collings

From Goodreads

She is a Dog - one of the many children and teens across the empire of Ansborn who have been sentenced to fight in the arenas. There they fight in battle after battle until they die for the sport of the people of Ansborn - an empire built atop the peaks of five mountains.

But one day she picks up a knife... and everything changes.

She discovers she is a Greater Gift - one of a handful of magic users with powers so great they have only two choices: to join the Empire as one of its premier assassins, or die as a threat to the Empire itself.

She is no longer a Dog. Now, she is Sword. And she will soon realize that in this Empire, not all is what it seems. Good and evil collide, and she can never be sure whom to trust - not even herself.

She holds life in her hands for some. Brings death by her blade to others.

She is a killer.
She is a savior.

She is Sword.

Book info:
The Sword Chronicles (610 pp) – when a slave girl discovers she has some of the strongest magic in Ansborn, a thousand-year-empire situated on the tops of five mountains, she is recruited to be one of the Empire’s top assassins. She is now known as a Blessed One, with power not only over life and death, but the supreme power to take anything she wishes for any purposes she desires. But not all is as it seems in Ansborn, and soon she is cast into a struggle not just with the enemies of the Empire… she is unsure who those enemies even are. Or if she herself may be one of them.
