There aren't elves or dwarves but you might enjoy The Codex Alera, it does have a couple non-human races and "magic" and the books start good and get better especially after the 2nd book. The 3rd and 4th are probably my favorites. The first book is Furies of Calderon

The Wheel of Time, by Robert Jordan. Epic in length, scope, number of characters, and any other quality you desire. I'm on book 6 and loving it.
Don't wake me for the end of the world unless it has very good special effects.

I second Wheel of Time. The sheer scope is amazing. The magic system is also one of the best. Definitely check it out.

Go with Wheel of Time.
Also try out the Dragonlance novels and the Saga of Drizzt novels.

Wheel of Time is like a super bloated 10,000 page version of Lord of the Rings, but its awesome for it.
My name refers to the Giant Monster not the band.

Wheel of Time is certainly in epic scale, and it will probably remind you a little of Lord of the Rings initially.
