Star Wars audio books are always well narrated and this one follows Return of the Jedi on the timeline. I'll be reviewing it soon as I own it on Audible.com. I hear they are throwing out 25 years of Star Wars book history though and the ratings look below par.
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens
 
Star Wars: Aftermath [reveals] what happened after the events of 1983’s Return of the Jedi. It turns out, there’s more than just the Empire for the good guys to worry about.”—The Hollywood Reporter
 
As the Empire reels from its critical defeats at the Battle of Endor, the Rebel Alliance—now a fledgling New Republic—presses its advantage by hunting down the enemy’s scattered forces before they can regroup and retaliate. But above the remote planet Akiva, an ominous show of the enemy’s strength is unfolding. Out on a lone reconnaissance mission, pilot Wedge Antilles watches Imperial Star Destroyers gather like birds of prey circling for a kill, but he’s taken captive before he can report back to the New Republic leaders.
 
Meanwhile, on the planet’s surface, former rebel fighter Norra Wexley has returned to her native world—war weary, ready to reunite with her estranged son, and eager to build a new life in some distant place. But when Norra intercepts Wedge Antilles’s urgent distress call, she realizes her time as a freedom fighter is not yet over. What she doesn’t know is just how close the enemy is—or how decisive and dangerous her new mission will be.
 
Determined to preserve the Empire’s power, the surviving Imperial elite are converging on Akiva for a top-secret emergency summit—to consolidate their forces and rally for a counterstrike. But they haven’t reckoned on Norra and her newfound allies—her technical-genius son, a Zabrak bounty hunter, and a reprobate Imperial defector—who are prepared to do whatever they must to end the Empire’s oppressive reign once and for all.

Fun look at the end of the Empire after Return of the Jedi
Rating 
 
4.0

I listened to the audible book of Star Wars: Aftermath a few weeks ago. The story is set after Return of the Jedi in the timeline. The Empire has lost the war but still have plenty of firepower to win smaller battles.
 
On the remote planet of Akiva three Empiral Star destroyers arrive for a secret meeting to determine their next move. Opposing them is a small group of interesting if somewhat unknown characters.  The group includes an Empiral defector, an insane killer droid and a mother and son.
 
The story was entertaining and what I especially enjoyed was the excellent voice narration and sound effects.
 
I give Star Wars: Aftermath four out of five stars for its excellent audio effects and good pacing. It didn't include many "A" list Star Wars characters but the story was a fun look at a science fiction universe "far, far, away" that many, like me, can not get enough of.
