5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By T. R. Alexander TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 20 Sept. 2006
Format: Paperback
The Liber Chaotica is a background book for Warhammer that details the powers of Chaos and their followers. The book brings together the four books detailing the major Chaos Gods and one final volume for Chaos Undivided. Each volume has detailed information on that god and its daemons although they do include some information that can be applied to all the gods equally, such as daemonic. Scattered throughout the book are margin notes from the author, which can be difficult to read at times but are fun as they show his dissent into madness.

Volume One: The Liber Khorne describes the motives and followers of the Blood God. As well as detailing the daemons, weapons and champions of Khorne the volume also goes into length detailing the Marauder tribes of the Norse, the Kurgan and the Hung as well as information on generic Chaos monoliths and Khaine the God of Murder. The volume finishes with a section detailing the actions of Khorne within the Warhammer 40,000 universe which is written from the perspective of a citizen of the Warhammer Fantasy Battles World which gives interesting slant on things such as Abaddons Black Crusades, Khorne Berserkers and the war machines of chaos.

Volume Two: The Liber Slaanesh details the Lord of Pleasure the Chaos God Slaanesh. This volume is interesting dealing more with the cults of Pleasure rather than the armies of Slaanesh, as befits his role among the Chaos gods. The volume has details on pleasure cults, daemonic possession and artefacts dedicated to Slaanesh, as well as his connections with the Elves of the Warhammer World. The volume also features an interesting folk tale of two brothers, one dedicated to Khorne the other Slaanesh, which nicely depicts the perils of following the whims of the Dark Gods.

Format: Paperback
A truly epic tome, bringing together the four previously published volumes and including a previously un-published section pertaining to Chaos undivided, this is essential reading for any fan of the Warhammer world or the 40k universe. This book contains snippets from the original Slaves to Darkness, Lost and the Damned, a lot of the higher quality material that GW/BL has written on the subject of Chaos, and a pile of completely new stuff too. Packed with beautiful illustrations and superbly presented in the form of the mad rantings of a scribe driven insane by his task, I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Possibly more interesting to people seeking knowledge of the Warhammer world, it is never the less a worthy purchase for any fan of the written word, all in all lovely book. Well done, Black Library.

Chaos Unleashed upon your Mind! 5 Jan. 2007
By K. P. Croall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Games Workshop chaotic pantheon has always been an inspiring, and at times frightening, expose of evil and horrors. This book was a delight, written with concise detail accompanied by memorable art. I have followed the GW chaos line since the release of the Realm of Chaos books nearly 20 years ago. Those two books are, and always will be, for me the height of GW's chaotic catalog. This book is a perfect edition for anyone wanting to delve into the dark realms of the GW universe without all the game stats. An incredible book that is written with such exactness and detail that one might imagine they might have really acquired an ancient and forbidden text like the Necronomicon. Worth every penny! The only reason I resisted in giving 5 stars is simply because I remember fondly the art of the Realms books, which at times has been duplicated here. It stands out over the new pieces of which many just do not have that feel of an ancient evil text.
