The author is Meredith Ann Pierce.  The titles from the trilogy are:

The Darkangel
A Gathering of Gargoyles
The Pearl of the Soul of the World

The first two books I found deeply fascinating, full of dream-like and very
vivid images, but to me, at least, the third book was a bit of a
disappointment because the author "explains" much of the very exotic and
innovative magic as some kind of extremely advanced science fiction.
