a really interesting look into the lengths people will go to protect their supposed peace even in what is assumed to be a utopia.

REEEEEEE 
I don’t know what I expected when I picked up Alexandra Rowland’s new queer pirate novel from the library BUT BOY HOWDY am I glad I picked it up. This is very different tonally to Rowland’s other book, A Taste of Iron and Gold, though they do take place in the same world. ATOIAG is more of a political thriller with a romance thrown in while Running Close to the Wind is a crass and cozy pirate romp that features a honest to a fault former government spy, his disgruntled on-again/off-again pirate captain lover and the new man they both have their eyes on who just so happens to be under a vow of celibacy; and not in a love triangle sorta way.
 
This book is a trip. It’s sweet and silly and funny and doesn’t take itself too seriously. This one is definitely more of a character driven book as the plot takes a back seat as soon as its been introduced but the character work being done is simply chef kiss.
