Hornblower and the Monsters from Space

Well, no, that's not really the title of a book (though it probably should be). I'm actually looking for a bit of help here.

A few years ago I was in a bookshop, a very good one in the UK that's now sadly been eaten up, digested and ejected by a bigger chain. It had little notes scattered around the shelves where staff had their current picks and favourites. One of the recent releases was about a man-of-war sailing ship in the 19th century, but mixed up with fantasy elements: sorry, can't remember the details, just that it sounded really good. I love both naval historical fiction and fantasy books, so this worked for me.

I didn't buy it.

"Why?" you ask, incredulously. "Blowed if I know", I reply.

Anyway, if you happen to have read this book, please, please drop a note in the comments to let me know what it is. The correct answer wins a signed copy of our first physical book, when and if we get one finished and published.

Over to you...
