The Last Jedi (not to be confused with the new movie), is a standalone follow-up novel to The Coruscant Nights Trilogy. With that said, it's probably better to read those books before reading this so that you can have a better understanding of what has already happened (but you don't really have to because I didn't, and I understood everything just fine).
In The Last Jedi, the leader of Whiplash has been captured by Darth Vader, and Jax Pavan and his friends set out to find him before the Imperials break him and discover where the rest of the Whiplash rebels are hiding. There's quite a few references to the TCN trilogy, and there's also a lot of characters from those books in this one (some of them being Den the Sullustan, Jax's droid named I-five, Prince Xizor, and Probus Tesla the Inquisitor).
The Last Jedi is kind of long for an E.U. book, but it's easy to read and is mostly pretty interesting. I found myself liking Jax's character, though I wished he wasn't so mopey sometimes. I wouldn't say that the ending was rushed, though I thought it ended maybe a little too fast.
Overall, I think that this was a good conclusion for this series, and I'm actually tempted to read the Coruscant Nights Trilogy now.

JAX: "There is no death; there is the force."
I-FIVE: "Meaning?"
JAX: "Meaning, I guess, that we go on. In whatever form. In whatever capacity. We work in whatever way we can. We never concede to evil. And we never surrender to the darkness."

DEN:" It's a good thing you opted for indispensable metal sidekick."
I-FIVE:"Yes, why?"
DEN: "Because you suck at comedy relief."

SUMMARY FROM WOOKIEPEDIA:
Aboard the ship Far Ranger, Jax Pavan, Laranth Tarak, Den Dhur and I-5YQ transport Thi Xon Yimmon, Cerean leader of the Whiplash resistance movement. They are en route to Dantooine, where Yimmon will be safe from the attacks that have taken place on Coruscant. They make a stop on Toprawa, where Jax and Laranth meet with Aren Folee of the Antarian Rangers. After continuing their journey, the ship is assaulted by Imperials at the Twins. Darth Vader and several stormtroopers board the dying ship during the battle. Laranth is killed, Yimmon is taken, and I-Five is nearly destroyed. Vader leaves with the Cerean, believing the fate of the survivors sealed, but Jax and Den leave with an escape pod, with I-Five's remains and the miisai tree that Laranth once gave to Jax. They are picked up by an escort of the Antarian Rangers and return to Toprawa. There they seek refuge in Mountain Home, a hideout used by the resistance there, and they meet several people. I-Five is refitted in the body of a DUM pit droid. Den and Jax are shaken by the previous events and contact Coruscant. After several days of staying on Toprawa they leave for Coruscant. There they have a meeting with the main members of Whiplash: Tuden Sal, Acer Ash, Dyat Agni, and Sheel Mafeen. Pol Haus is also present. After Jax meets with the Cephalon Aoloiloa, who warns him of events to come, he infiltrates the Imperial Security Bureau. Vader is present and he sees Jax, who is disguised. Jax quickly leaves after knowing Yimmon isn't there. Back at his ship, the Laranth, an Inquisitor is onto them. Jax, Den and I-Five leave Coruscant in a rush. They make for Mandalore, where several Imperial ships have been seen. Jax meets with a Black Sun contact of Tuden Sal, Tyno Fabris. Jax negotiates with him and Prince Xizor and eventually learns of Kantaros Station in the Both system, where Yimmon might be. Meanwhile, Tuden Sal is planning to kill the Emperor but Haus disagrees with him. After withholding information, Sal removes Haus from Whiplash. Haus uses Mafeen to gather intel. Den and I-Five refit the droid in a new body and disagree with Jax's methods. The three leave for Kantaros.
