I read this book many years ago. It is about a normal guy he ends up freeing these women. It also has wizards turning into lizard people from corrupt magic. I know this is not much to go on but I would love all the help I can get.

Sounds like The Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind. Don't know if all that is from the books but some of that happens in the TV show at least.
