Book 4
WHO WILL FINALLY RULE THE EIGHTH CONTINENT, ONCE AND FOR ALL? 

In the final action-packed adventure of this series perfect for fans of the Seven Wonders and the Candy Shop War series, Rick and Evie Lane are in an epic battle to take back the eighth continent!

The Lane siblings have done the impossible and they finally have control of the eighth continent. But before the Lanes can finish building their dream city, shadowy corporation Mastercorp shows up with a terrifying weapon: the Anti-Eden Compound, which has the power to instantly turn anything into stinking garbage.

Now, it’s Lanes vs. Mastercorp in an all-out war that will take the siblings from the coldest depths of the ocean to the thickest parts of the jungle. And with evil Mastercorp agents, bullying robot boys, and pesky Winterpole agents on their tails, it’s only a matter of time before the Lanes have to make an impossible choice: risk losing their beloved home or unite with their arch enemy Vesuvia Piffle.

In this exciting conclusion to the 8th Continent series, Rick and Evie Lane must rely on every resource they have to save the city – and the home – that they’ve built together.

Book 3
HOW WILD WOULD IT BE TO BUILD ON AN EIGHTH CONTINENT?

Rick and Evie Lane believe that the eighth continent will be theirs to rule forever. There’s just one problem: global rule-maker Winterpole won’t let anyone move there!

Now, the Lane family must rush to create hospitals, homes, schools, and (shocker!) government buildings to prove that their continent is fit for human habitation. But the Lanes aren’t the only ones engaged in this race for space. Condo Corp secret CEO Vesuvia Piffle recognizes this as her opportunity to finally snag the eighth continent for herself. If she can knock down enough of the Lanes’ buildings and construct perfect, pink, plastic ones in her image, the eighth continent might just finally be hers to make all sugary sweet and spider-free.

The Lanes will need to use every resource at their disposal to ensure that their precious eighth continent remains as natural—and wild—as they are. Just as it was born to be.

Book 2
WHAT IF YOU BUILT A CONTINENT OF YOUR OWN? AND WHAT IF IT WAS ON A COLLISION COURSE WITH AUSTRALIA?

Rick and Evie Lane have finally converted the Great Pacific Garbage Patch into an eighth continent. But their dream of a new homeland for their family turns out to be short-lived. Because when robots from the villainous Condo Corp crash into their continent, a fatal oversight in the building process is revealed: the land mass was never anchored to the ocean floor!

Now, the eighth continent is sent barreling toward the coast of Australia, thrusting Rick and Evie’s dreams, 23 million people, and countless plants and animals into jeopardy.  If Rick and Evie are ever to get their family back together and have a continent to run—and not run after—they must find a way to root their beloved paradise to the Earth’s crust. Or else everything that they built will go pow like Pangaea!

Book 1
HAVE YOU EVER WANTED TO CREATE A PLACE WHERE YOU COULD MAKE YOUR OWN RULES?

Evie and Rick Lane are determined to transform the Great Pacific Garbage Patch—a real life pile of floating garbage—into an eighth continent, using a special formula developed by their father. This new continent will be a place where their family can make their own rules and live free from the intervention of Winterpole, a global governing agency run by bumbling bureaucrats.

But eleven-year-old pink-and-plastic-obsessed Vesuvia Piffle, the secret mastermind behind the villainous Condo Corp, also has her sights set on this new land, and she wants to use it to build a kind of Miami-on-steroids.

Now, it’s a race against time and across the world as the kids gather the items they need to create their continent. Because whoever controls the eighth continent controls our future. And the future can’t be both “green” and pink.
