Rob Thurman - Nightlife, Moonshine, Madhouse.
First three in the series, a half-elf - (although the Auphe are more like dark elf/goblins), his human brother (warrior noparriel), and their friends, Puck, a modern Vampire, an oracle. The first is a bit rough, but the writing gets better as it goes. The plots are good, adventure/mystery in the modern world with hidden monsters, compares favorably with Jim Butcher. an 8 the series.
