My guesses for the italics: lord trump, or Nre's father. Or both?

This is great. I like the plot line I just have two critiques. One-Cameron's wish. It makes it seem like Carvin didn't really love her. I would think that would bother her more.
Two- you switch between Lord Tiroe and Trump in the earlier chapters. I couldn't figure it out. At first I thought it was her angry nickname for her fiance but then the king called him that to his face. Then I saw the part where you changed his name in the A/N. You might want to fix it because readers who read the story completely after it's completion can't follow who your talking about.
Other than those two details it was amazing. I love the different characters, and you use mysteriousness and not an annoying lack of information. (I hope that makes sense because it was a complement.) Thanks for putting a great story here for everyone to read! :)
P.S. I hope you found this helpful and not annoyingly long and rambling.

And you thought you should hide away in your house for fear of pitchforks in earlier chapters!
I guess this does work out for me though since I want Nre to end up with Carvin. BUT NOT THAT WAY!
Oh well, there is no helping it I guess, I shall miss Cameron.

This is me, finally finishing this story about a year too late. -twiddles thumbs nervously- I'm aware that there's no good reason for you to forgive me, but I beg it of thee anyway. (you can tell I'm really sorry because I'm lapsing into Shakespeare-speak) You slave over my writings, and I can't even take the time to appreciate yours.
I have the month off from school, and getting caught up on your stories is on my list of Things to Do at the Earliest Possible Convenience. and now I shall proceed to review the entire story in one review, using a technique that I've dubbed "Random stream of consciousness" Follow if you dare (can).
Karl is my favorite, because he has killer one-liners and does cool things like smirking and subsequently disappearing.
Faidn is my second favorite, due to his general hilarity and because he does cool things like survive pirate attacks for no particular reason and lose his hat to girls named Lydia who can shoot better than him.
You shocked the fluff out of me when you killed Cameron, but it made me insanely happy-as do all plot twists that I don't see coming.
I failed miserably at every single one of the fairy's riddles-except the last one, because it has been my experience with riddles that if the question has to do with something being stronger than something else, then you just say "love" because love is stronger than anything...'cept God, who is love, so that's sort of a circular argument.
If I were Nre and Cameron helped Rose off her horse and not me, I would have thrown a fit, because some part of me is a selfish, whiny girl.
I've always wondered why fathers who marry their children off unwillingly with some higher noble purpose in mind don't just tell their children why they're doing it. actually, now that I think of it, Cameron and Nre could have been told the story and then could have just kissed and wished for world peace and it would have been great. but then you wouldn't have been able to write this, so I suppose rationality must be sacrificed for good reading.
Carvin is a hopeless romantic, and all the random stuff at the end reminded me of some chic-flicks I've seen, but I still would have married him, which is saying something because I hate chic-flicks.
My random stream of consciousness just ran out, so I shall bid thee adieu.

Thanks for such a great fic. Your characters are always awesome: I never mix up the main ones. I was devastated when Cameron died. *sniffles* But the wishes were very sweet. I loved how you had so much ending for me to pour over. The dibbuns in the last chapter were adorable (I know it's not Redwall, but they were Dibbun-like!) I can't wait to read Lilliana's story next.
