Something to consider when writing a fantasy where there are two sentient species that coexist is that for about 5000 years, Neanderthals coexisted with modern humans, and either went extinct or interbred themselves away as a separate species. Below are two separate hypothetical family trees for the genus Homo (yes, I know, ha-ha).

Chris Stringer's hypothesisReed et al.'s hypothesis
(The darker image is Chris Stringer's, the lighter with tan is Reed et al.'s. Neither endorse this bit piece I'm writing.)

Note how shortly (in evolutionary terms) after H. sapiens arrived, other species in the genus went extinct. This isn't the case for everything, even everything that interbreeds, but it certainly is something to consider.
