Have you read Elfhunter by C.S. Marks? It's the first book of a huge trilogy - lots of elves. I reviewed it over a year ago, but since then it's been picked up by a publisher and re-released.

Try a book by A D Dowland I cant remember the title, but the authors name will get you to it, lots of magic, not too many goblins, but coverns, and demons, vampires, and other such good things, and its only 86p.

I've just released a traditional fantasy book on kindle if you have one called Path of Dreams, lots of mythical creatures in there. Author - Kathryn Dunnett. I'd love it if anyone would read and review.

Hey you guys, i've just recently published 'The Rings Of The Lords' as an ebook, it's more of a spoof though, but if you like elves and magic and such, you may like it. I've as of yet not received feedback from it on amazon. Still actually the length of The Lord Of The Rings!

You mean Tolkien derivatives?...

In that case, apart from Lord of the Rings, you have:
The Sword of Shannara by Terry Brooks
The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini
Memory, Sorrow and Thorn by Tad Williams

but the best of the bunch for elves, dwarves, magic etc. are

Dragonlance Chronicles Trilogy by Weis/Hickman
Magician (Riftwar Saga) by Raymond E Feist

R A Salvatore seems to be the "go to" author for various series about elves/dwarves etc.

In reply to an earlier post on 6 Dec 2011 17:43:01 GMT
J.Yasimoto says:
R A Salvatore works in the "Forgotten Realms" world. This, along with "Dragonlance" (another Dungeons & Dragons setting), sticks very closely to J R R Tolkiens Middle Earth world. Take your pick from literally hundreds of books.

Try Jim Butcher's Dresden Files series: full of fairies in an urban setting with werewolves as well, and Harry Dresden is a wizard who runs a detective agency.
Also Laurell K. Hamilton's Merry Gentry series starting with A Kiss of Shadows (bit steamy at times) - another detective agency at first, but the protagonist is princess Meredith NicEssus, about to become a potential heir to the Unseelie throne.
You have, of course, read The last Unicorn and other books by Peter S Beagle (not elves, but a really evil witch). (The cartoon follows the book fairly closely).
