Description from the amazon:
A thieving duo's world turns upside down when an Elven rogue uncovers the heinous dealings of a megacorporation.
Anya and Leticia are partners-in-crime who steal for a living. Their world turns upside down after a chance encounter with fellow rogue, Ithilnin-the enigmatic leader of an Elven band of thieves.
A scuffle to prove who's "the better thief" transforms into more than Anya and Ithilnin ever bargained for. They retrieve the missing piece of an ancient poem, before getting caught in the secret dealings of a megacorporation. What they uncover threatens to alter the very essence of not just human life, but the other side as well.
Elven intrigue, cyberpunk action, and a deadly dose of danger come together in The Other Side of Life [Book #1 in the (Cyberpunk) Elven Trilogy].
She's like a wild vapor of sweet champagned. He felt a slight tightness in his throat. Romantic balderdash -- I think I'm losing my mind.

In-a-word(s): The Velvet Underground
Elves with high-tech gadgets and humans involved in action and mystery.
I liked the interaction and interconnection portrayed between elves and humans.
This is a cool intro to elves and elfpunk fiction for newbies like me.
