Some will tell you there's a general rule of thumb that says prologues should be banned to the netherworld, never to return. Others swear by them.  I say, do whatever the heck you want that you think is right for your story.

Just kidding.  As long as it needs to be.  No longer, no shorter.

I am currently working on a YA Sci-Fi/Fantasy novel where the prologue is about 2/3 my average chapter length, but that's just me. It feels right.

I wrote a 45,000 word prologue in three parts.

I know, I should be burned at the stake. You can use all the dollar notes i've earned as kindling.
