pixiealice wrote:Amazon vampires? This weirded me out a little bit. I guess I relate cold, dark, miserable climates to vampires and the Amazon is anything but! Zafrina was a great addition with her powers, helping Bella (and scaring Bella) and it opened us up to the idea that vampires "exist" everywhere, not just dark and damp places. I thought Zafrina was a natural leader and was glad she was in the book. The more vampires, the merrier.
Definetely. I'm Brazililian and I got pretty confused with vampires here. It's so sunny, the whole year. I barelly can imagine the Cullens here.
I freaked when I read the honeymoon would be near Rio.
I loved Zafrina's character. She's scary, but she's not a bad person. I thought it was so cute her friendship with Nessie and the way she said in the end of the book they would be friends.
Well, about Amazon, the rain forest has thick vegetation. The trees are very, very high. It's almost dark in some parts of the forest. But I think Zafrina and her sisters might prefer hunting at night, near the villages. There are many legends about monsters and other supernatural forces which attack careless people. Maybe SM based Zafrina in one of those legends.
