When she was a deeply troubled teenager, Nikita was rescued from death row by a secret U.S. agency known only as Division, who trained her as a spy and assassin. Nikita was eventually betrayed by the only people she thought she could trust. Now, after three years in hiding, Nikita is seeking retribution and making it clear to her former boss, Percy and her former friends Michael and Birkhoff that she will stop at nothing to expose and destroy their covert operation. Division continues to recruit and train other young people, among them Jaden and Thom, erasing all evidence of their former lives and turning them into cold and efficient killers. One of these new recruits, Alex is a beautiful girl with a violent past and a story not so different from Nikita's. The recruits all spend part of their training with Amanda, a master manipulator who can turn any ugly duckling into a swan and any bleeding heart into a killer. Written by

Nikita tells her foster father, "I had just turned 18, so they were able to charge me with Murder 1." It is possible in every state in the United States to charge at least some juveniles with first degree murder, and especially possible to do so for a cop killer. What is actually impossible under 18, on the grounds of unconstitutionality, is sentencing a juvenile to death. See more
Nikita, baby, that was ten years ago.
It was eleven, I'm 27 now. And if you call me baby again, I'll break something else.
