A reddit user actually just pointed me towards this book: http://www.amazon.com/Hidden-Stars-Worlds-Trilogy-Unmaking-ebook/dp/B000N2HCT2/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1459732057&sr=8-6&keywords=the+hidden+stars

Thanks though. The book you suggested looks really cool so I'll be adding that to my list as well!

I've been trying to figure this out for months. The book in question was written (I believe, by a female author). It was the first of a trilogy, and had a sea serpent on the cover. I think Sea was in the title. The most I can remember about the book (I read it 10+ years ago) was that the magic system was based around drawing runes or symbols. Any help would be appreciated!

When one god finally rose up and slew another, The Pact was formed, forestalling any further damage to the realms of men. But now, over the last few decades, signs of the Demons and their mindless Accursed minions have dwindled to an all-time low. It seems that after a thousand years of conflict the Gods of Light and the Gods of Darkness have finally tired of the bloody war. Or have they?
It falls to Trent, a Paladin of the Light with a soul torn with an impossible and unrequited love for his commander and scarred by a childhood filled with despair and pain, to travel beyond the walls of the city to discover what has become of humanity’s ancestral enemy. Only with his closest friend Devin by his side can Trent hope to keep from losing himself. Together the two men track a horde of Demons to a secret that will rock the Mortal Plane to its very foundations.

Fantasy Book & Author Discussion / Re: To prologue or not to prologue?

Personally I have never had a problem with Prologues or Epilogues. Usually I just think of them as another chapter (albeit a chapter that is either stylistically or temporally removed from the main narrative enough to not be a "regular" chapter). I don't think I have ever skipped either.

For my own novel I have both a Prologue and an Epilogue. The former takes place twenty years before the main narrative, while the latter takes place immediately afterward. They serve as "bookends' to the main narrative, and also feature characters who do not have POV's in the rest of the book. I am still not sure if my Epilogue character will have chapters in the second book or not...
