For two years, Rebecca Grimwood has been plagued by the same dream: an overturned ambulance vehicle, a long winding road, a motorcycle, and a man whose face she can’t make out. Dreams are just dreams, though, and she tries not to pay them much notice. Yet when a fortune teller tells Rebecca that her destiny involves a sacrifice, Rebecca seeks the answers she didn’t know she needed. To find them, she returns to the beginning: her old hometown of Harpers Ferry, West Virginia.
There’s always been something haunting about Harpers Ferry— maybe because it’s old Civil War ground, or the fact that ever since arriving, Rebecca has started seeing things she can’t explain. Things lurking in the shadows, in the farthest corners of streets, their voices whispering. Things out to get her. But one night, when a man named Derek saves her from certain death, Rebecca can’t help but feel that some good can come from the shadows.

West Virginia has a piece of my heart, as do authors that write about it. The time pieces were beautifully interwoven and immersed me in her thoughts. Well done!
Refreshing and intriguing, with a good dose of romance. Rating: 4/5 I don't have enough good things to say about this book!. Dziyana Taylor's Casting Shadows is a fantastic paranormal read, packed with action, adventure, and the right amount of historical appreciation. I love Rebecca, and while I think she should have given Nick more of a chance I have to agree that there is something just too darn alluring about Derek. Casting Shadows starts out on a Civil War battlefield, so appropriate considering all of the political turmoil in the Capitol, and jerks us forward at almost blazing speed into the modern-day. Harper's Ferry is the perfect setting for Rebecca to get some R&R, and to maybe run in to some paranormal friends to spice up her life. Taylor's depiction of the area, and her appreciation for the antiquity of the DMV, was a delight throughout the book. I'm still hanging off the edge of my seat over the ending, and cannot WAIT to see what happens in the next installment in the series!
