I am looking for a fantasy book series that I read at least 15 years ago, and may have been from earlier than that.
It was mostly about a relatively small and poor northern kingdom. One of the books was about a powerful sorcerer raising an army of skeletons and attacking the kingdom. After being defeated the sorcerer kidnapped the main mage of the kingdom (a woman) and planned to sacrifice her but was killed.
The evil sorcerer was not a human I think but something like a giant reptile, a dragon maybe.
