The Named by fallintolife


The Named is a superhero webnovel primarily following Aiyana, a college student who gets sucked into a world where names are everything and reality is nothing like what she was told growing up.

In this world, some people are given Names (with a capital) which reflect some aspect of their personality, which in turn grant them abilities related to their Name.
