      Kushiel's Dart is a good series. If you're not opposed to sci-fi,
      the Otherland books by Tad Williams are pretty good as well. Melanie
      Rawn's Dragon Prince and Dragon Star are my other recommendations,
      and they might be better because they're purely fantasy with no
      elves, but they do have dragons in them. Another series is Robert
      Jordan's Wheel of Time (first book is The Eye of the World), but it
      has a lot of action in it and it's really long--none of the books is
      under 700 pages.
      Just my thoughts, take or leave 'em.
